Good-morning to all,
I just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Justin (KB7CSW), few local hams, and I (KB0MMR) will be celebrating or supporting a young lady (YL) KF5RRG (Kelsee) for her 17th birthday party on 3 Nov 2012 using HF. She will be attempting to contact all 50 states and anyone else that would like to wish her a Happy Birthday or just wanting to say hello. The only gotcha is that she is looking for a QSL card made out on Saturday that says "Happy Birthday Kelsee".
Kelsee just recently upgraded to General and will be attempting her Extra ticket this Friday. This event has been in the works for several weeks and she will attempt to contact all 50 states through out the day with her callsign. She will be using a ICOM 718 at a 1000 watts with two beams (20 meter and 17 meter) and 5BTV vertical at her house. Her QRZ page will have more information later this week on the details of you HF birthday party.
I would love for you that has a callsign to be her first contact for your states. This event is going to happen during November Sweepstakes contest. If you know other hams in different states please pass this email on to them so this will be a successfully World Wide HF Birthday Party for her.
FYI she is an experienced HF operator on phone, the callsigns she has operated under are WW2SUB and K5USA. She has logged over 500 contacts under these call signs. This wil be here first time using her newly upgraded callsign on HF.
