Using the Huge Discone at Titan Missile Museum

Our local club, the Radio Society of Tucson, operated the 7th Area QSO Party from the Titan Missile Museum in Green Valley on May 3, 2008.

The museum has a HUGE discone antenna, which basically allows operation on any HF band.  We had a lot of fun!

The antenna was built in the 1960's, during the cold war.  At one time it must have been totally off-limits and high-security, but now they allow hams to use it freely.
