May 6th Commemorates the 75th Anniversary of the Hindenburg Crash on May 6, 1937

The NJDXA commemorates the 75 anniversary of the crash of the
Hindenburg with the special events call W2H. On May 6th, the actual date of
the disaster, we will operate two HF and one VHF stations from the Lakehurst

The Lakehurst NAS operation will use the call W2H. During the periods April
28 through May 5, 2012 and May 7 through May 12, 2012 individual club

the 75 anniversary of the crash.
