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.
