We had a good showing last Friday at the Think Café for dinner. When the meeting was called to order (about 19:20) URAC's own Diana Feinberg, AI6DF, gave a great presentation of the IOTA station operation on Catalina Island. There were many pictures and diagrams of the set up at Two Harbors. Dianna was there with the PVARC Group, of which some were also URAC members participating. Her presentation started with the boat trip over, which was very smooth, and covered lugging all the equipment to the site once the boat docked. The set up of antennas and radios was very interesting. They had a visitor during the set up and take down ... a Catalina Buffalo (or Bison) named George who showed up in many slides. He seemed interested in the goings on, though I don't know if they made him a Honorary Ham?


They seem to have made a good many contacts, both in the US and some DX. All in all, fun was had by all. There was a tour of the place were they all stayed, which had a nice outdoor covered kitchen and communal Rest Rooms. Thank you, Diana, for a most interesting program. Great Job!

Welcome to K6AA, the Club Station of URAC (United Radio Amateur Club).  For over 25 years the station has been located within the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, at the bottom of 6th Street in San Pedro, CA.  Manned by club members whenever the museum is open, new ham club-members are welcome to join these volunteers as operators of the station.  If you find yourself in or near San Pedro, drop by the museum and visit the K6AA window to see what all the excitement's about.
