It’s been kind of slow lately as far as QSLs from stations whose callsigns spell words. These last two are from special event stations, though. That makes them, well, special.
W0EBB is the callsign of the Kickapoo QRP ARC. It was established in 2003 to honor Clarence Drimmel, W0EBB of Atchison Kansas. This club sponsors a winter operating event every third Saturday in February called “Freeze Your Keys”. This event is an outdoor event usually run from a shelter house in Weston Bend State Park which is about 10 miles north and west of Kansas City and just east across the Missouri river from Leavenworth Kansas. This card confirms a contact made during that event.
K0ANT is one of several stations that participated in the Antarctic Activity Week. Their card reads, “The intent of the AAW special event is bring worldwide attention to Antarctica and to the international scientific community working to preserve and protect this pristine corner of the Earth, unlocking its secrets, and to share a message of peace.”
