The Story County Amateur Radio Club will meet on Thursday, June 1, at 7:00 PM. Bill Boswell, WI0JK, will present, “Surrender on the Air.” During WWII, Bill’s father was a radio operator in the Army Airways Communication System (AACS) in New Guinea and the Philippines. His station copied the surrender message traffic between General MacArthur and the Japanese Imperial Headquarters. Bill will share his father’s first-hand experiences and source material, and highlight some interesting details that were left out of the official historical transcripts.
