Back in the late 1980's and early 90's when I was attending Ohio State I
operated at W8LT. Our club station was located in a room on the 4th floor of
the Horseshoe. I have many fond memories of that time. Around that time we have
quite a few members that were contesters - N8VW, KC8MK (now K8MK), WD8IXE (
N8SM SK), K3JT, WD8LLX (now W8LX), KC3N (now KC5R) and myself.
We had a couple towers on top of the stadium with various antennas over the
years. We also had the famous W8LT 600 foot longwire which ran from the stadium
and across a busy street to the bottom of the smoke stack for the power plant.
I remember putting up various wire beams , bobtails etc... from the high
supports we had. I remember one year a bobtail for 80 meters was put up in the
open end of the stadium for a contest. Those were some fun times. Unfortunately
W8LT is no longer located at the stadium. See
