K4R, Russell Cave Special Event Station. 5/11/19

Richard Arnold
 

The K4R, Russell Cave Special Event Station activation is now behind us.
We consider it to be a successful outing with 11 club members present, 1 visiting amateur operator and 3 guests and a good time was had by all present.


We began the day at a disadvantage with two members absent due to sickness and a tragic death in the family and rain delays as well.


We knew this activation would be challenging due to the location of Russell Cave in the shadow of the mountain and weather conditions and while we were not able to operate on all bands planned we did achieve 15 contacts on 20 and 40 meters.

Our dedicated radio operators were Mark Pierson, KN4JXL and John Hilliard, K4JCH.

Members present were:
Richard Arnold, K4NHA.
Ben Lowe, K4QF.
Byron Lauderdale, KN4QVD.
Danielle Fuller, KN4SDJ.
Jerry Rossanno, N4JR.
Jim Clifford, NK3V.
John Hillisrd, K4JCH.
Kendall Mashburn, KN4KYX
Kendall's Wife, Brittney Mashburn.
Kendall's Daughter, Piper Masburn.
Mark Pierson, KN4JXL.
Patrick Gifford, KN4BRG.
Tanya Sparkman, KA4TLH.
Visiting Amateur was Chris White, KK4TLK from Whitwell, TN and his Father-in-Law Jerry Godsby that lives in the cove at the cave.

Thanks to all that turned out for this event and to my setup and tear-down crew.

K4NHA.
