On April 15-17th, the Shreveport Amateur Radio Association
will run Special Events Station W5E from the Eight Air Force
Museum at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, Louisiana,
home of the 8th Air Force.  The station commemorates the 60th
anniversary of the last combat mission of the 8th Air Force
over Europe.  An authentic SCR-287 WWII bomber radio station
and an SCR-274N station will be on the air,
along with other equipment working all bands.
A beautiful QSL will be sent to stations contacted.
More information is available at:

Authentic WWII SCR-287 Station Operation:
While there will be intermittant operation of the
vintage gear throughout Friday and Saturday, on or around
the frequencies below.
The WWII Bomber radio station, SCR-287, running 70 watts of AM,
will operate officially on 3880 KC on Saturday, April 16th from
6 PM until 10 PM Central time, plus or minus 5 KCs for QRM.

There will be a special endorsement to your QSL for working
the vintage station(s).  Please note that WWII equipment is
not YeaComWood; some drift and/or chirp may be expected.
We respectfully request the support of the AM community for
our operation of this event.  We will also have a complete
and operational SCR-274N station, as well as a display of
the radios used in ferrying operations by the
Women's Army Service Pilots and Women's Army Corps during WWII.

As time and ops permit, we plan to operate the vintage equipment
on other freqs.  Look for us around 1845, 3545, 7045, and 7245
(WWII ended in 1945).
Thanks and hope to work you.
