The following article is from the Huntington, West Virginia Herald-Dispatch, August 30. The amateur control station pictured is Michael Love, WB8YKS.
As the article points out the special event was a total success. It was very rewarding that the young man also pictured was interested in amateur radio and intends to move forward to get his license. This obviously is the future of ham radio and it’s so important for its continued growth. Special event stations such as the one that we just completed, I believe personally, is critical to the hobby in getting the word out to the public.
