Absolutely loved the QSO, Tanner. Tickled pink, running 100 watts into an inverted Windom Dipole. Can’t wait to see the card. Gud luck on the 50th Anniversary Johnson Space Center Special Event. 73 John, KC4LZN.
Had a brief QSO (understandably) with W5RRR via SO-50 (Saudi OSCAR 50) at about 1358z on October 14. I hope that is part of the special event activity. I’d certainly would like to get a special event QSL card. Thanks for the QSO and happy anniversary! 73 Mac, AE5PH.
Yes, sir, Mac! Please see our QSL Instructions.
Hi Mac, I was the one running the satellite station during the event and glad we were able to make a QSO with you. Hope you enjoy the card! 73 de John, AB5SS
I was able to make it thru the pileup on 100 watts on a g5rv. As a transplanted Houstonian now up in Minnesota, It was an honor to work you guys. Happy anniversary! 73 Stephen – N5MBN
Where do I send sad to get QSL?
Follow our instructions here: https://w5rrr.org/qsl/
I was so excited to make contact with W5RRR— David at the mic — on 10/14/17. I’ll be sending for that QSL card for sure! Thank you!!!!
Thanks for the QSO. Special event stations that are interesting to my kids are hard to find but who doesn’t like SPACE? Together, we have worked N1KSC-Kennedy Space Center and DL0ESA-European Space Ops Centre. It is an honor to add Johnson Space Center to the list. Happy Anniversary!
Great QSO will definitely send QSL Card
Tanner is hammering into AZ on 15m very loud off the vertical. Have fun guys.
Congrats on ur Special Events Station . Made contact 5/9 on both freq., and both operators Tanner and Keith were very entertaining.

Congratulations of your 50 years!!! It was a pleasure working JSC once again. Thanks for the QSOs on 20 and 40 Meters. My QSL card is on the way. 73
Left the radio on 14.273.00 and after a few hours the band came alive! Made a great contact to W5RRR. Thanks for the contact and thanks for the event!
Just got home now, and tried on 14.273, and after the pileup of callsigns, I called /QRP. I am running LD-11 LNR precision QRP radio 6 watts thru alexloop, and got thru, from INSIDE MY HOUSE!!!! 🙂
I tried a few times yesterday(outside on endfed antenna), but 20M didn’t seems to be as loud/clear as today. Thanks for QSO Tanner, you’re 5/9 and excellent audio.
Congrats on special event 50yrs.
I like those QRP stations, Jim! 73
