When I was at Ohio State University in the early 1990's we had a bunch of active contesters at our
club station W8LT.
N8VW (ex NZ4K,K8LR), W4EF (ex KD8NS now a W6UE opr) , N8SM ( ex WD8IXE (SK)) , K3JT,
KC5R (ex KC3N) , W8LX (ex WD8LLX) and myself.
Lot's of good memories like :
The 800 foot long wire at Ohio Stadium (our station was just below the bell tower at the end of one
of the horseshoes). I remember getting there just after a game - (when they rang that thing it was
The yearly treks out to the W8JK radio telescope in Delaware, Ohio for the ARRL 160 contest. We
used the many acre GP for our 160 antenna groud system. I think we had about 10 beverage
antennas every year too. We came in the top ten muti-op category for almost 10 straight years.
2nd place in SS CW Multi-op one year.
Last but not least all the great friends I made. I marvel at how we all turned out when I see everyone
at Dayton !!
K8ND and K1LT were also W8LT alumni before our group came thru. I bet there are more out there
I don't even know about ???
