Youth DX Adventure Station W3Y to be QRV on July 29

After being forced to cancel its planned trip to Curacao due to the extensive delays in processing passport applications, the Dave Kalter Youth DX Adventure shifted gears and is operating this summer from a premier DXing location rather than a DX location. 

The ARRL Letter reports that special event station W3Y will be operated from the K3LR contest superstation in western Pennsylvania on July 29. The team of 4-5 young hams between ages 12 and 17 will have the opportunity to work the world from one of the world's major contesting stations. 

The Dave Kalter Youth DX Adventure program normally sends a group of young hams on a DXpedition each summer. It is sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association and named in memory of Dave Kalter, KB8OCP, who became a Silent Key in 2013.
