Party At The Ham Shack

46CQ CQ CQ Calling all hams! We're having an open house at our new TWiT Brick House Studios August 20 and 21 and you're invited. A special event station will be active on 40 and 20 meters afternoon and evenings commemorating the official opening of the new TWIT studios of Leo Laporte, W6TWT. Tours of the new studios and classic Collins AM broadcast station will be available 10AM - 10 PM Saturday and 10AM to 5p Sunday to all Amateur Radio operators. The TWIT Brick House studios are located at 140 Keller St. in Petaluma, CA.

The call sign to be used will be W6KB, the Redwood Empire DX Association whose members have been instrumental in the planning and installation of the antenna system during the final construction of the new broadcast studios, home of the HAMNation netcast which is produced each Tuesday night hosted by Bob Heil K9EID, Gordon West WB6NOA, and George Thomas W5JDX.

The radios will include the IC-9100, IC-7800, and IC-7200, all courtesy Icom America and mics from Heil Sound. We'll broadcast a preview of the new gear tomorrow night at 6p Pacific/9p Eastern on HAM Nation.
