Bob Heil K9EID and Joe Walsh WB6ACU visited ARRL HQ in Newington CT on March 5 - 6, 2004, to operate W1AW during the ARRL International DX Phone Contest, and to visit with League staff and donors. They also took advantage of a unique opportunity to operate an IC-7800 at  W1AW.

Bob reports: "So much fun and THAT was the first real outing for the 7800.  Worked perfectly for two days straight with six hours solid carrier on AM !....never even got real warm to the touch !"
