These are the people that make it all happen!
Thanks to all that participated in Mission 33. We were able to get 4 jumps in making it a very busy day! We had a total of 3 skydiver, 11 Ground Crew, 2 at Parachute Control, and 4 at Pacificon. Wow! Takes a lot of work to make this happen. Thank you to all our Parachute Mobile volunteers. Mission 33 breaks a QSO record: over 100 of them! Please remember to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you made a contact with a skydivers so we can make sure to send you a QSL card. Unless otherwise stated all cards will be sent to the address as listed on QRZ.com. For all those that completed a contact card at the Pacifcon GOTA station, then you’re good.
Parachute Mobile will be taking a much needed break. We’ll be back Spring of 2019. We will still continue to make post here as well as on Facebook, so come back often to see what’s happening.
If you’re expecting one and don’t receive it in about a weak, let us know. Email email@example.com.
Mission 32 QSL cards are almost completed and should be in the mail soon. In the mean time you may want to consider coming to a Parachute Mobile presentation. This Wednesday, the 19th at 7pm we’ll be at Orinda Library presenting at the Lamorinda Area Radio Interest Group, k6ori.groupspaces.com, and on October 11, we’ll be presenting at the Stock-Delta Amateur Radio Club at 7pm at The Amblers Club, w6sf.org. Hope to see you there.
Thank you to all that participated during Mission 32. Another great mission completed. As soon as we review the recordings and consolidate our logs we’ll get the QSL cards out. If you made a contact with a skydiver and you haven’t emailed us as of yet, be sure to do so at skydivinghams@ gmail.com. State which jumper it was; Rob or mark, and the jump number. If you happened to recall what time you made the contact indicate that as well.
Don’t forget, Mission 33 will take place in conjunction with Pacificon, October 20.
