THE WINSTON-SALEM COURTEOUS OPERATOR'S
(AKA WINSTON-SALEM CONTEST
The W4WS Contest
WINSTON-SALEM, NORTH CAROLINA
W4WS is the call for the
Winston-Salem Contest Crew. Contests have been run from W2DZO for several years,
but as of CQWW 2002, most of our operations have taken place from our new
Multi-Single station at Robert Whitaker KG4NEP's location in Southeast Forsyth
County. The new location has given us an opportunity to put up more towers and
receive antennas, something that our little yard on Franklin Street was unable
to hold. The station is available for our members, or guest ops, and is designed
for SO, SO/2R or M/S. The lineup at the new W4WS includes the following

LOOK FOR US IN THESE UPCOMING
Courteous Operator's Club was originally founded in 1994 by members of the Forsyth Amateur Radio Club who had a special
interest in contesting, as well as visiting Prince's On the Park for pizza,
wings and beer after FARC meetings. Membership in the club requests you to be a
member of the FARC, OR operate the CQWW SSB contest with our team at least once.
(You will then be privvy to the Order of The Scepter...) The vanity call
