THE WINSTON-SALEM COURTEOUS OPERATOR'S CLUB
(AKA  WINSTON-SALEM CONTEST CREW)


The W4WS Contest Station
KG4NEP, 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 :
See you on the air!

Henry Heidtmann, W2DZO
Trustee, W4WS
Chairman, PVRC/NC-West
Robert Whitaker, KG4NEP
Secretary, PVRC/NC-West


THE PVRC/NC-WEST Chapter meets on the 4th Monday of every month at Cobalt's Eats and Drinks on Deacon Blvd. in Winston-Salem (across from the Joel Coliseum). Arrive at 7pm- we usually wrap up by 9 or so. All contesters are invited!

    The Winston-Salem 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 W4WS was received in 1997 with Henry Heidtmann, W2DZO as trustee.  We are affiliated with  CDXA (Carolina DX Association) and many of our members are affiliated with the North Carolina Chapter of The Potomac Valley Radio Club (PVRC). Our club 10-X number (#68632). For information about joining us for a contest, you may email the group at: henry@summitschool.com.  The mailing address is:

Henry W2DZO and Gene WB4MSG traveled to Manchester, Md. to the QTH of WX3B to work with Jim's Multi/Multi operation. What a blast!
