Today was a good day for K6AA, which really got better. Having just checked into the YL System Net, I was listening to the check-ins when out of the blue I heard KV4WW/AM. He came in real strong. I had a chance to make a contact with him, we were both 59. The OP was David, a UPS MD-11 Captain at 36,000 ft heading to Portland. It was a great contact and really made my day! An Aeronautical Mobile contact is always enjoyable, but the really strong signal this guy had made it great! When you read this, Dave, I want to say "thanks for the contact!"

URAC would like to welcome the 3 Navy vessels to the Port of LA. Today they started onboard tours. While tours are sold out for this weekend, for a great view take a Harbor Cruise and get a good look at them from the water. Thats what I did.

Here are a few photos I took during my Harbor cruise ... at left is the USS Halsey (DDG-97), below left is the USS Cape St. George (CG-71) and below right the USS Bunker Hill (CG-52).

There was a good showing of URAC members for this year's FD. With only two stations in operation, one Phone and one CW, our Class was 2A. The weather was nice, but a storm threatened and it was a bit humid. Total score still to be counted, but a good time was had by all.

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.
