Once a year, the Crown Amateur Radio Association sponsors a Pony Express Special Event Station at the Hollenberg Pony Express Station near Hanover KS. The Hollenberg Station is thought to be the only original Pony Express station in the nation that has been preserved and is still on its original foundation. During this one day old-west festival, K0ASA is on the air from the Hollenberg,disguised to look like and sound like an 1860s telegraph office and complete with telegraph sounders clicking away.

Here's a link for more information. Come join us or see if you can work us!
