Pell Elementary School School Club Roundup on 40 and 2 meters


Apparently results were not so hot yesterday on 20 meters, so they have decided to operate on 40 meter SSB (7.225 to 7.255 MHz) starting about 4 PM today (Wednesday) in addition to 2 meter FM on 146.55 MHz

Call sign is W1SYE, and they would like to get back an exchange from you like “599 Individual RI”. Their exchange would be “599 School RI”
