May 7, 1530Z-2230Z, Fort Knox, KY. Owensboro Amateur Radio Club, W2P. VE Day, General George Patton, 3rd Army and 8th Armored Division. 14.248 14.048 7.248 7.048. QSL. Schley Cox, W4AMW, 1860 Antler Ave, Owensboro, KY 42303-1873. www.k4hy.net.
From the OARC: We are going to set up two stations — one on 40,
the other on 20 — and alternate working CW and SSB on each band an
hour at a time. We think we have enough CW and SSB ops to provide that
kind of operation.
General Patton never visited Ft. Knox, but the Patton Museum is there
since the fort was the home of armor school for so many years. That is
why Ft. Knox is so identified with General Patton. The 8th Armored
Division originated at Ft. Knox in 1942.
