SJDXA provides old ham radio gear for filming of PARANOIA
February 28, 2019
Last year, South Jersey DX Association President Bob Schenck, N2OO was contacted by the Yasme Foundation about taking over all of the Lloyd and Iris Colvin (W6KG + W6QL) logs. A few weeks ago, a file cabinet filled with the paper logs and cards arrived at N2OO’s QTH. SJDXA members have done an inventory. There are 112 Lloyd and Iris logs along with two other DXpedition logs (FO0XX Clipperton 1986 and 3D2AM Conway Reef 1990) as well as 3 Danny Weil logs. All logs are listed below with associated dates of operation. SJDXA members will be scanning all of these logs and saving them. They represent some one million QSOs. This project will take some time. In the meantime, if anyone is seeking QSL cards for any of the listed calls, we will be happy to oblige. Nearly all Lloyd and Iris QSL cards are originals as are the FO0XX and 3D2AM QSL cards. Danny Weil original QSL cards are NOT available, however we will make up a replacement for them as well as any others that we run out of should anyone request a confirmation. All originals will be available while they last. First come first served. QSL information is noted below or go to the N2OO QRZ page. OQRS is available at https://www.oqrs.net/n2oo/. Contributions are welcome but not required.
These logs are an important part of DX history. SJDXA and Yasme pledge to save them for everyone in our DX community.

In the summer of 2012, SJDXA (c/o N2OO and K2TQN)
provided ham radio gear for the filming of “PARANOIA”
starring Liam Hemsworth and Harrison Ford.
Be sure to check out the credits at the end of the film!

It was very exciting to meet both actors on the set!
