Go QRT with a bang! Special event KA6LMS



If you’re a fan of Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing TV series, you’ll have one last chance to contact the show’s amateur radio station before it goes on QRT.

The week-long KA6LMS radio special event begins on March 24 at 00:00 UTC and continues until 11:59 p.m. UTC on March 30, which is the show’s last filming day.

It will be an all modes and all bands event. Fans will have the opportunity to work the bonus stations 1 by 1; K6L, K6M, K6S, W6L, W6M and W6S. Stations in each call sign area will operate as KA6LMS / 0 to KA6LMS / 9, providing nationwide coverage. Remote operators are a virtual “who’s-who” of celebrities, competitors and podcasters.

Many will broadcast their operations live. Check spotting sites like DXSummit for contextual operations any day and anytime during the week of the event. We expect the “on-stage” radios to be operational from the studio in California on Saturday March 27 at 6:00 PM UTC using 20 meters and Sunday at 10:00 PM UTC using 40 meters.
Remote stations will act as relays to give everyone the opportunity to make contact with the scene.

If you’re a fan of digital fashions, Saturday March 27 is your day. At 5:00 p.m. UTC – KA6LMS will use D-STAR on Reflector 12 Alpha, hosted by the PAPA Repeater System. At 19:00 UTC – D-STAR action moves to reflector 30 Bravo, hosted by Georgia D-STAR.

At 11:00 p.m. UTC – Amateur Logic.TV will host the KA6LMS Multimode QSO PARTY using: Allstar, DMR via Brandmeister, D-Star, NXDN, P25, Echolink, Hamshack Hotline, Wires-X and Yaesu System Fusion.

A livestream of this activation will be available at: http: //live.amateurlogic.tv Go on QRT with a bang! QSL KA6LMS cards will be available for stations that contact the scene directly or via relay stations. Special event certificates, including “Clean Sweep” endorsements, will be available for download.

The KA6LMS radio event is sponsored by the 12 Days of Christmas and K2Heros teams of the Great South Bay Amateur Radio Club, in association with Amateur Logic.TV, The PAPA and Georgia D-STAR repeater system
