Magic Kingdom 40th Anniversary

October 1, 2011 - 40th Anniversary of the Magic Kingdom

Saturday, October 1st, 2011 marked the 40th Anniversary of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  To commemorate the anniversary, the Walt Disney World ham radio club D.E.A.R.S. operated  a Special Event station on 40, 20 and 10 meters.  The Special Event started at 10:00AM and continued until 8:00PM.  Some of the Sun Country Amateur Radio Society members were invited down to take part in the special event.

The members of the Disney Emergency Amateur Radio Service welcomed us open arms and made us feel right at home.

The picture to the left shows Joe and Carol working 2 of the 3 radios that were setup.  Joe was on 10 meters and Carol was on 20 meters.  Both Joe and Carol made serveral contacts from all over the world.  Carol even had a maritime contact and one from someone who said they were on a bicycle.

All who participated are looking forward to working with D.E.A.R.S. again at their next Special Event.
