Special Event Station Success via Remote Maestro

This weekend, my 6300 was the main Phone station for the National World War One Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, MO.  This museum contains the largest collection of WW1 artifacts in the world.  The special event station's call was WW1USA.  You can read about the special event on the website:  http://ww1usa.org 

My 6300 was remote via a SoftEther bridge.  Everything worked well except the Waterfall display never functioned.  Still having issues with that part.  

We were able to make over 400 contacts between Saturday and Sunday through VERY challenging band conditions.   I'm sure that this number was due to the 6300's superior ears.

I'm very pleased with the operation of the radio via the Maestro.   The radio was used by multiple operators over the 2 day period, and I never had to sit and train any of them.  That speaks volumes to the great engineering and design of the unit to make its use almost totally intuitive.   Congratulations to the Flex Radio Team for a great ecosystem.  It made challenging environment easy to operate from.

    I am the one who spoke with you.  Your 6700 sounded great.  One of the strongest signals all day.   I was using a Heil Pro Set 7.  The antenna system was a Butternut HF9V with 30+ ground radials.  Thanks for the contact today!image

    I was one of your contacts.  I didn't realize you were using a Flex.  You sounded great.

    Well done! 

    The WWI Museum is on my list for next KC stop.  Last work stop wasn't long enough to allow for it.

    Your operation with a number of operators having fun, making lots of QSOs in tough conditions and showing off the neat technology sure is a report of success!
