August 5-7, 2011 Rocky Mountain Ham Radio attended the ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Convention in Taos, NM.  Nearly 650 attendees were offered many forum tracks, great banquets and W1AW/5 operated from the Rocky Mountain Ham Radio Comm Trailer.  The coordinator for the station, Chris Aas, NB5T was glad to have our assistance for a very busy W1AW/5 schedule.  Many Boy Scouts came through the trailer and got their opportunity to operate W1AW/5 under the assistance of one of our volunteers.  In this picture, Gerry Villhauer, W0GV is helping a scout work the tribander.

Many hams stopped by and checked out the W1AW/5 station as well as the Rocky Mountain Ham Communications Trailer.  We hope that by them seeing this unit, that they understand that hams can do anything if we set our minds to it.  It was noted that this trailer was a new iteration of the old communications trailer, version 2006, that was originally inspired by the Los Alamos Amateur Radio Club as it was in 2004.
