B-17 "City of Savannah" Special Event Station W2W on May 15th

The Coastal Amateur Radio Society in Savannah, GA will be activating Special Event Station W2W on May 15th from 9:00am til 5:00pm in conjunction with the Armed Forces Day festivities at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum. CARS is working with the B-17 "City of Savannah" restoration team to restore the radio compartment of this legendary WWII aircraft. We will have our station setup under the wingtip of the aircraft and hope to stream video of the event throughout the day. As a special treat we will also be running a WWII era BC-348 reciever for the public to listen to.
