The Fort Wayne Radio Club will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the siege of Fort Wayne by operating from the restored historic fort. When British and Native American forces attacked and took control of Fort Dearborn (present day Chicago) and Fort Detroit during the War of 1812, that left Fort Wayne at the confluence of the St. Joseph, St. Mary, and Maumee rivers as the last American stronghold in the northwest frontier. A full historical account of the event can be found at;

Operation begins at Historic Fort Wayne at 1400 UTC and runs until 2200 on Sept 8.

Frequency updates will be posted to QRZ.com W9TE listing where you can also find
the link for nearly immediate download of our custom designed Special Event Station

Thanks to Steve W0SJS for his fabulous service of creating and hosting the automated
certificate download webpage. If you ever think about hosting a special event station, then
I highly recommend talking with Steve.
