Club members and guest ops are always busy operating the W7DK station. W7DK is usually on the air at the Clubhouse during open house every Saturday. We also operate in class "6A" for Field Day in June. Station ops enjoy casual QSO's with hams around the world and find time to practice their skills in a number of contesting events throughout the year. You may hear the Mighty 'DK on CW, single sideband, or various digital modes including RTTY, PSK-31, and JT-65.
The operating achievements by the 'DK Operating Team, which are based on thousands of QSO's logged over the years, qualify our club station for a number of operating awards. Check our progress in the W7DK Awards Progress Report.
Please QSL via Logbook of the World.
QSL cards may be sent via the bureau, or direct (with SASE) to the club's Post Office box address.
Our W7DK QSL manager is currently: Dave/W7UUU.
