Nate N4YDU a 2014 and future 2018 WRTC competitor operated the W1/Eastport Maine station from his home in North Carolina. Here is quote from his experience:
“I had the pleasure of a full blown SO2R contest operation through RHR this past weekend and absolutely loved it. I had zero problems and it felt just like home but with better antennas and an amazing QTH. It was absolutely awesome”.
Not only did Nate enjoy his experience operating the remote station in Maine but from preliminary results posted on 3830, it looks like a #1 USA finish in the very competitive SO/HP category! Here is Nate’s 3830 post: http://3830scores.com/
