On October 15 beginning at 9:00 AM the Lanierland Amateur Radio Club and Hall County ARES will be co-hosting a Special Event Station W4T (Whiskey Four Tango) at Don Carter State Park at Pavillion #4 located at 5000 N Browning Bridge Rd, Gainesville, GA 30506 (Just off Clarks Bridge Road SR 284). If you don’t have a GA State Parks Pass there is $5 parking fee to enter the park.

This Special Event coincides with POTA (Parks On The Air) Support Your Parks Autumn Event.  This should be a fun event for all with a chance to learn more about amateur radio and get a chance to see and operate different radios set up for the Special Event and the POTA Support Your Parks Event.  Everyone is invited to attend and participate.  So come on out and enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship and do a little HF operating.  If you want to bring any amateur gear you might have to sell bring it along. You may also bring your HF radio and/or antenna  to set up and operate.  See how much fun Parks On The Air is to operate. Jimmy Harris, KN4NZK will be preparing some of his “World Famous Barbeque” (For a Modest Price) at lunch time (Noon Until 1 PM).

Those operators that operate the W4T Special Event Station and make at least 10 contacts will receive a nice certificate suitable for framing. All amateurs who contact W4T during this event will receive a QSL by sending a QSL and SASE to: W4T, P.O. Box 2182, Gainesville, GA 30503.  Come on out and enjoy a great time.  For additional information contact one of the following:
