The QSY Society’ Field Trip to ARRL HQ and W1AW

On Monday, March 14, 2011 several QSY members journeyed to Newington, CT.  Our Section Manager, Pete N2YJZ accompanied us.  We got the royal tour of the HQ facilities, had a great Italian lunch in Newington, and then return to visit the Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Station W1AW in the afternoon.  Three of us elected to operate. 

It was a challenge to take decent pictures or video because the space is limited, there is quite a bit of glare from glass, and the tour keeps moving.  However, there are a few still shots and some unedited movie footage of actual W1AW operation.
