Plano Balloon Festival Special Event - K5P #ARRL #hamradio


The station will be set up directly across the street from the Balloon Festival launch site and is hosted by the First United Methodist Church, 3160 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano, Texas. Both clubs will be actively participating in the joint effort, making contacts across the country and around the world, as well as showcasing  amateur radio to the public.

We plan to have 2 stations operating onsite from 2 PM (CDT) / 1900 UTC on Friday until 2 PM (CDT) / 1900 UTC Sunday (Operations will cease at night between 10pm-8am CDT/ 0300-1300 UTC) and we plan to operate on or near the following frequencies:

SSB:
40 meters - 7.255 +/- QRM
20 meters - 14.260+/- QRM
17 meters - 18.145+/- QRM
15 meters - 21.315 +/- QRM


Limited activity from home stations before and after the event is also possible. A special QSL card is available with SASE. Check the K5P site on qrz.com for details.
