I always enjoy this operating event. The stations are very good at sending their QSL cards. The gives one the opportunity to QSO entities such as The Pentagon, The USS Midway, The USS Yorktown, The US Naval Academy, and Schofield Barracks Hawaii where the 1953 Movie, “From Here To Eternity,” winner of 12 Oscars, was filmed.

The PDF listing is quite unwieldy, so I always make my own spreadsheet. I like to program the 50+ frequencies in my transceiver memory banks, so it’s easy to quickly scan them in the receiver. So the spreadsheet is listed by frequency, then operating hours. This makes it fairly easy to snag QSOs. (I notice each year there are fewer and fewer stations operating CW).
