Veterans Day in Clovis, N.M.

November 12, 2014

By Lee Trask

Veterans Day 2014: I was in Clovis, N.M., and asked both American Legions to let me set up. They said sure, but what's amateur radio? It gave me the time and opportunity to speak as a goodwill rep for ham radio and TALARC, which they had no idea about. And I also became the first to activate on the air (American Legion post on the air - as I nicknamed it - AMLOTA).
Post 25 at 12:36 MTN time using my call W1LWT, and Post 117 at 1410 with my remote groups call K1AOM.

These are a few basic pictures of today's setup.
