While the [U.S. Naval Submarine Base, located in Groton, Connecticut] station has been reestablished and their towers and antennas restored, they recently lost their callsign (K1SSN) custodian/trustee. Bob, K1RJV, of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, was the custodian for many years. For the past couple of years Rich, NL9H, of Green, Rhode Island, was the custodian.
Currently the station is maintained by Air Force MARS members led by Ted, K1YON of Hartland, Connecticut (NW corner of the state). Ted and his team are about two hours from the base. Ted is looking for help from a local ham or one of the local clubs to pick up the call and assist/manage the station. The individual does not need to be military. Access to the base is not an issue. If help is not found, the callsign will be lost and the equipment surplussed.
This is an idea opportunity for one of the local clubs to partnership with the base and very likely grow both clubs (the local club and the base club). If not one of the clubs, perhaps someone out there is interested in coming to the aid of this historic station. There are many possibilities here. Can you help? If so please answer this post and contact Ted, K1YON at email@example.com. This is an important issue that needs help.
