WW2COS Activation for the Annual Eighth Air Force Historical Society

We had a great time on July 23 activating the "City of Savannah" radio room to celebrate the annual reunion of the Eighth Air Force Historical Society.  Got to play on the aircraft as well as mingle with many brave airmen who flew these birds during WWII.

It was a great day with fellow radio operators Bill DeLoach-K4WP, Mac McCormick-KF4LMT, and Peter Levesque-KJ4FAW.  Appreciate their help in setting up, operating, and tearing down radio station WW2COS.

Looking forward to the next activation perhaps on Sept 14th to celebrate the USAF birthday.

It was a pleasure to work your station (WW2COS) on Nov 11, 2014. I was operating portable from Hurricane WV with 10m watts SSB. Thank you all for your service to our country in WW2!
