W9GUS is our special event and contest callsign that is used to honor Virgil "Gus" Grissom a native of Lawrence County Indiana, who died along with fellow astronauts Ed White and Roger Chaffee in the tragic Apollo 1 pre-launch test accident on January 27, 1967. We use this vanity call for the Gus Grissom Day Special Event station, Field Day, and other contests and on air activities that we enter as a club.
