2020 PA QSO Party Bonus Station
The Bonus Station for the 2020 Party is a 2-station operation by the Skyview Radio Society. The organization will be operating two stations, K3MJW, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Skyview Radio Society, and W8XK celebrating the 100th anniversary of KDKA.
Skyview Radio Society would like to thank the PA QSO Party committee for allowing Skyview, K3MJW and W8XK to be the 2020 bonus stations. We will do our best to provide all of the QSOs we can, on all of the bands that we have antennas for.
2020 is the 100th birthday for KDKA radio! The original callsign was 8XK, then W8XK. (We will also be having a month-long special event station operation in November with many WPA clubs participating)
2020 is also Skyview Radio Society’s 60th birthday! Our clubhouse is located on 2 acers of property near New Kensington, PA and has be on the air since 1960. We are active in many aspects of amateur radio. Public service, kit building, QRP, digital, contesting and more. We have a great radio room and antenna farm with the capability of operating on three different bands using high power, at the same time.
Skyview, K3MJW will be QRV from Westmoreland County, while W8XK will be QRV from Washington County. We hope to be active the entire period of the PA QSO Party.
All QSL requests must be accompanied by an SASE. Thanks in advance.
We very much look forward to seeing you on the radio!
