Pomme de Terre SE Kickoff!

Hello, my D.A.R.K.lings and all visitors!

Sam here!

What a great day down at Pomme de Terre dam, just south of Hermitage, MO in Polk County! We made 51 phone contacts and we’re STILL making FT8 contacts as of this blog update!

Foxtrot and the kids were out having fun, too! They got to swing, use a mini-digger, and hold up Pomme de Terre Dam (like tourists do at the leaning tower of Pisa!) while we were onsite!

Here are some photos from the event so far:

We learned the ARRL Sweepstakes runs this weekend (D’oh!) but that only slowed us down for a little bit! Thank goodness for digital operations (Thanks, Roger!), which helped us rock on through when phone was just not feasible!

We hope our other members hop on for at least a little while each day to rack up some more contacts for our second special event!

Thank you to everyone who has contacted us so far! It’s wonderful to hear your words of encouragement, support, and thank you’s for activating! We’re glad you could join us for our special event!

We look forward to talking to more of you this week, so we’ll catch you on the air!
