A special event to mark the end of taping of the final season of the "Last Man Standing" television series ended up with more than 85,000 contacts in all 50 states and 138 countries. According to Newsline, the operation ran from March 24-30 and involved guest operators around the country.
The comedy featured a ham radio station as part of its set and occasionally part of the script. "Last Man Standing" starred Tim Allen, KK6OTD, as fictional amateur Mike Baxter, KA0XTT.
The station on the set was fully functional and was frequently put on the air during breaks in shooting by licensed crew members and visiting hams. John Amodeo, AA6JA, was the program's executive producer.
