Title: Tesla's Wardenclyffe Laboratory on the air as W3T November 5th
Post by: KD0FNR on October 31, 2011, 12:10:02 AM
Hi,

Wardenclyffe, Nikola Tesla’s last laboratory will be on the air November 5th as special event station W3T!  Wardenclyffe is located in Shoreham, NY on Long Island.  W3T is part of a network of special event stations that are helping to raise awareness for the effort to purchase the laboratory and restore it into a science museum.  To read more about the effort to restore Wardencyffe, please check out http://www.teslasciencecenter.org (http://www.teslasciencecenter.org).  The other stations in the network are N3Y which will transmit via satellite and possibly HF from the New Yorker Hotel, Tesla’s last home in Manhattan, and YU0TESLA which will transmit on 20m as well as other HF bands from the Tesla museum in Belgrade.  For the latest updates on what frequencies to catch the stations on and a sneak peek at the QSL cards and QTHs, go to http://copaseticflows.appspot.com/teslaevent (http://copaseticflows.appspot.com/teslaevent).

If you’re in the Shoreham area on the 5th, please stop by the station!

Also, be sure to check out the Radio Central Amateur Radio Club.  They will have the Marconi radio shack on the air a few miles away transmitting as a special event station commemorating the 90th anniversary of the opening of the RCA transmitting antenna farm in Rocky Point, NY.  More details are available at http://www.rcarc.org/ (http://www.rcarc.org/).  Without the RCA club W3T would not be on the air.  Their help has been invaluable!

If you have any questions, or you’d like to help out, please feel free to contact me at hcarter333@gmail.com.

Did these stations ever activate? I checked three times during NOv 5 on the referenced webpage and no frequency updates were ever posted. Listened on the frequencies listed on the radio club page at different times and never heard the W3T station. Just curious if W3T operated from the Tesla lab.

Hi!

We did operate.  Unfortunately, we did not wind up with an internet connection over there, so frquency updates on the web page weren't possible.  Sorry you missed us.  Hope to hear you next year.
