  Ham tent on Edison grounds
by grandmaR

We happened to be in Fort Myers at about the same time as they were celebrating Thomas Edison's birthday. They had dedicated the statue under the Banyon Tree in the parking lot the day before. The HAM radio club had places set up both in the parking lot and in the grounds of the Edison house where you could send a message to anywhere in the world for free.

Fort Myers, FL: Fort Myers Amateur Radio Club, Inc, W4LX. 1500Z Feb 14-2100Z Feb 18. The Edison Festival of Light and Thomas Edison's birthday. 28.430 21.330 14.250. Certificate.
