The local True Value hardware store cut me a deal for obtaining the entire 475ft roll. They dropped the price to $0.10/foot. So it cost me $47.50. Such an offer I couldn't refuse! So I have more than enough to put up two of those masts. I even found the anchors that are over 18" long. Since these masts only go up about 36feet, this should be more than adequate.

You will hear early Ship-Shore and Ship-Ship 500kc CW Transmissions, and see and hear the voices of the early Ham and Radio Pioneers.

You will also hear an actual SOS received by David Ring, N1EA, who was the operator on the Super Tanker "WILLIAMSBURGH" who answered the SOS from the passenger ship "PRINSENDAM" in 1980.

So the best thing is to watch the cluster for W1AW/7 spotted in the AM Windows. - Paul >David Knepper - W3CRA/W3ST >Collins Radio Association >www.collinsradio.us (new) >Join the CRA today >-----Original Message----- From: Paul Baldock >Sent: Tuesday, September 30, 2014 3:18 PM >To: amradio at mailman.qth.net >Subject: [AMRadio] W1AW/7 on AM In November > >W1AW/7 will be operational again on AM.
