WW1USA July Special Event
Santa Fe Trails Amateur Radio Club hosted the Special Event station WW1USA at the WW1 Museum and Memorial this past weekend (July 23-24). It was a great success despite losing about six hour of operation due to a water main break. The museum was forced to close at 3:00pm on Saturday because it was deemed unsafe to the patrons.
