I Love Pluto – Special Event

The Northern Arizona DX Association will be conducting a 10 year special event countdown to the 100th anniversary of the historic discovery of Pluto by Clyde Tombaugh at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. This 9 day annual event , as W7P , will be held every February through the 2030 anniversary with the inaugural event February 13-21, 2021(UTC).  Club members will be operating from Lowell Observatory and their home QTHs and each year of the countdown will feature a new QSL with subjects centered around Clyde, his discovery, the moons of Pluto, some of his homebrewed telescopes he used, etc., with lots of great information about this historic discovery.

A beautiful 8 X 10 color certificate , suitable for framing, with endorsement stickers for each year worked during the event will be available.

Each year, Doug Tombaugh(N3PDT), Clyde Tombaugh’s nephew will be operating during the event at W7P/0 and a contact with him or his team, counts as an additional endorsement on the certificate.

More information can be found on QRZ’s callsign lookup of W7P.
