Where ever you are, Hams are always close by to lend a hand.
I was watching the black and white Grundig TV in TH and making a school report with pictures taken from the TV with my Rolleiflex 120 mm Kodak film.

Apollo 11 Special Event
Where Were You?
Saturday July 20, 2019 0900 PDT
This Saturday marks the 50th Anniversary of the landing of Apollo 11 on the surface of the moon. Our own Chris Durso, AA4CD, will be operating a Special Event Station from the Kennedy Space Center using the Kennedy Space Center Amateur Radio Club callsign N1KSC (n1ksc.org). AA4CD's operations will commence on the PAPA analog repeater system at 0900 PDT Saturday July 20, 2019.
The KSC club will provide special QSL cards to stations that contact N1KSC to commemorate the Apollo 11 moon landing. Chris will be using IRLP through the AA4CD UHF repeater located on Merritt Island in Florida. This event goes until the date of the splashdown, July 24. Some KSC club members are operating from their home stations and some from the Cape throughout the next two weeks. More details will be available at https://www.n1ksc.org/ soon.
Fun Fact: 50 years ago Chris was at the club station (WB4ICJ) with his father, K4DJN, operating on HF talking to people around the world before and after the launch.
