K2P - a Great Day in the Park!

Check out some photos from Cannonball Park Operations - Click This

Special Event Station K2P Operated from various QTH locales over the weekend and finally LIVE at John Paul Jones (Cannonball) Park during Memorial Day itself to celebrate the 150th Kings County (Brooklyn, NY) Memorial Day Parade. We talked to You, the wonderful Hams throughout the world, as we watched thousands of marchers descend upon the reviewing arena. Dozens of marching bands from around the country came through with their drums, horns and cymbols blaring as we were making contacts, often making it difficult to hear your calls but, we made sure we logged each contact correctly in order to recognize those that supported us.

A special certificate will be available via Email for all verified contacts. We will be checking your QRZ page for an email address but, if you do not have one there please email us with your call sign and we'll send you back the customized certificate for participation. The certificates will be in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format that you can print at your lesiure. It will take a few weeks to get them all made due to the many contacts made and that each one will be specially made like a QSL card with the contact data. 

All contacts have been logged on QRZ, eQSL, ClubLog and LoTW. If you do not use any of these, just send us an email with your call and your logged info and we'll call that confirmed and get you out a certificate. All logs will be coordinated After the holiday so, if you do not see a confirmation right away, it will come soon. If you do not see one by Tuesday, 5/30 Eastern US time, send us an email with your log data and we'll straighten it out. 

Thanks to all those operators who made contact, we appreciate each one for remembering those who served to make our lives better here in these Great United States and around the globe.

They actaully fired 21 rounds from the 80 mm cannons. That's what you get in Cannonball Park!
