2020 Special Event

Our thanks to the over 1,000 stations contacting W9C in 2020!

The Metro DX Club's 2020 Special Event operation, operated June 19-21, 2020. The event recalled the huge Crescent City FIREBALL that occurred on Father's Day, June 21, 1970. The tragic event happened during the early morning hours when this small town's peace was shattered.
