The Cape Fear Amateur Radio Society sponsored a Special Event Station in celebration of the 100thAnniversary of Fort Bragg, NC from 3 – 9 September 2018. This was a once in a lifetime event.

We had 9 CFARS operators and a few logging assistants who conducted digital, CW and SSB HF operations during this period accumulating 2411 total contacts. Band conditions were challenging to say the least, contacts were made as follows:
