The Southern California based PAPA Repeater System will be holding a ham radio special event!

Under the call sign K6H, “Ham Radio Celebrates Hollywood” will be held on Sunday, October 28th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (1600Z – 2000Z) and emanate from the Stage 9 of the CBS Studio Center facility in Studio City, California.

Historic Stage 9 is the home of ABC TV’s “Last Man Standing”, starring Tim Allen. “Seinfeld”, “Spin City”, “According To Jim”, “Cane”, “The Cleaner” and “The Defenders” are among the shows that have been shot on the stage.

Several of the show’s licensed operators will be on hand to host the PAPA members and a number of paths will be available to contact the stage including HF, VHF, UHF, DSTAR, Echolink and IRLP.

A schedule of operating times and frequencies will be published on the PAPA website. Take a break from contesting, come over and say hi.

To facilitate contacts during the event, operators will BLOG in real-time on the KA0XTT Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/KA0XTT) and on the @NN6JA on Twitter page.

The set will also be monitoring the BEARS (ABC/Disney) interconnected repeater system, which links W2ABC (in Manhattan), WD4WDW (in Orlando Florida) and KA6AJE (in the Los Angeles area). The system can be reached on Echolink via WD4WDW-R.

We are hoping other organizations will link in to make this a national event.

A special, limited edition QSL card will be issued to all confirmed contacts.

Zombie Special

After much planning and careful implementation the “Zombie Special” antenna is finally on the air.   Basically this is a caged fan dipole.   I have gotten fantastic signal reports on 75 meters in excess of the standard fan dipole that this antenna replaced.  It also seems to hear extremely well also.  I have already heard stations that I’ve never been able to copy before the highlight of which was a QRP station in Oklahoma running 5 watts.
