A QSL from W1BCG

This station, with the special call sign, was set up to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the first amateur radio station to span the Atlantic Ocean, 1BCG. The original transmitter was recreated and operated on 160 and 75 meter CW. The location was only a few miles from the site of the old 1BCG station. The AWA was the driving force behind this station and two AMers, Tim, N2GIG and Bob W2ZM were heavily involved. Tim saw to it that a few "bonus" AM transmissions were made and some lucky AMers were able to work this historic call.
