The STARS Nike Base Club Station, WB2ELW, is located at the Hamburg Recreational Facility on Lakeview Road, and is available year- round for meetings, on-the-air operation, contesting, and special events. It is open every Thursday from 7-10 PM for members to visit and/or operate. Our clubhouse has recently undergone a renovation, and we are now able to operate on all bands from 160 meters through 70 centimeters. The major highlights include an Icom IC-765, Yaesu FT-990, Yaesu FT-847 transceivers, and an 800 watt Clipperton L amplifier. An Icom 2-meter FM transceiver rounds out the operating positions. Our new 80 foot self-supporting commercial tower holds a 6- element tri- band yagi for 20, 15, and 10 meters, 2-meter/70 centimeter cross-polarized yagis, and all-band dipole antennas. Our station will operate SSB, CW, AM, FM, and a wide variety of digital modes. Our PC’s are used for logging, internet access, and digital modes. WiFi is available to club members, and on a limited basis to visitors to the Nike Base recreation grounds. Our club call sign, WB2ELW, is one that has been recognized around the world!
