Operating Opportunity: W3T puts Nikola Tesla’s laboratory Wardenclyffe On The Air!

Posted: November 4, 2011 in Mancorad Radio Club

Just arrived this afternoon – an interesting special event:


I saw Mancorad ARC on the http://www.arrl.org web site. Could you please pass the following along to your members?

Wardenclyffe, Nikola Tesla’s last laboratory will be on the air November 5th as special event station W3T! Wardenclyffe is located in Shoreham, NY on Long Island. W3T is part of a network of special event stations that are helping to raise awareness for the effort to purchase the laboratory and restore it into a science museum. To read more about the effort to restore Wardencyffe, please check out http://www.teslasciencecenter.org. The other stations in the network are N3Y which will transmit via satellite and possibly HF from the New Yorker Hotel, Tesla’s last home in Manhattan, and YU0TESLA which will transmit on 20m as well as other HF bands from the Tesla Museum in Belgrade. For the latest updates on what frequencies to catch the stations on and a sneak peek at the QSL cards and QTHs, go to http://copaseticflows.appspot.com/teslaevent

If you’re in the Shoreham area on the 5th, please stop by the station!Also, be sure to check out the Radio Central Amateur Radio Club. They will have the Marconi radio shack onth anniversary of the opening of the RCA transmitting antenna farm in Rocky Point, NY. More details are available at http://www.rcarc.org/. Without the RCA club W3T would not be on the air. Their help has been invaluable!

And, this just in, we are proud to announce that one more historic station will be on the air with us on the 5th of November, the Police Athletic League Amateur Radio Club of Yonkers, NY, a mere few meters from the site of the first FM transmission 66 years ago on November 5th of 1935 will be on the air with same call sign as the historic station: W2XAG.

If you have any questions, or you’d like to help out, please feel free to contact me at hcarter333@gmail.com.
