Informal Grenada Commemorative Operations Set:

It was 30 years ago this month, after an army-backed pro-Marxist coup degenerated into civil disorder on the Caribbean Island nation of Grenada, that the US military spearheaded an intervention known as "Operation Urgent Fury." As The Daily DX reports, Mark Barettella, then KA2ORK and a student at the Saint George's Medical School, got on the air /J37, becoming a source of news and vital information regarding the US and Caribbean Regional Security System "intervention and rescue of US medical students in Grenada" on October 25, 1983.

Now N2MD, Barettella is heading back for the 30th anniversary of the event and will operate as J3/N2MD. Joining him for the anniversary will be retired US Navy officer Arnal Cook, N9ACC (ex-N9AKX), who was involved in the 1983 mission. He will be active as J3/N9ACC. The holiday-style operation will involve both fixed and mobile stations, 80 through 6 meters SSB, mostly during their evenings.
