Project 425 had special guests on Friday, Sept. 16 at the G&M Ranch in Loxahatchee Groves. Amateur radio operator Mike Bald and a few of his close friends came over to reach out to many other radio operators in the U.S., Venezuela, Columbia and many other South American countries to help celebrate National POW/MIA Recognition Day.
With each contact that they made, they exchanged special QSL cards (a form of postcard), and this year’s card will have a photograph of Project 425’s helicopter. Mike Bald’s call sign K4MIA was used by operators all over the U.S. and Puerto Rico to help create awareness of this special event and day.
Project 425 had all its military vehicles on display. There were also tents, chairs and refreshments set up for many of the spectators who stopped by to enjoy while watching and listening to the radio operators in their quest to reach out all over the world.
