THE PAN AM CLIPPER
Do you plan to hop on a plane to spend this holiday season with distant family and friends? I’m sure you are looking forward to being there, but, are you as excited about the actual flight? Done any commercial flying lately? Could your experience best be described as !!#*$*%&%. Yeah, I was afraid of that. Well, here is a look back to the glory days of flying when it was an experience best described by ahhhh and getting there was part of the fun.
It is 1938 and twelve Boeing 314 Clippers ( named for the speedy clipper sailing ships of old ) roll of the line to be purchased by Pan American. Pan Am later sold three of them to British Overseas Airways Corporation and retained the other nine for their operations.
At 106 ft. long and with a 152 ft. wingspan, the 314’s four 1,600 HP radial engines could cruise at 188 mph with a range of about 3,600 miles. The plane carried about 5,400 gallons of fuel and 300 gallons of oil for the engines. A crew of eleven catered to either 74 daytime passengers or 36 passengers on nighttime flights.
Pan Am made its maiden trans-atlantic voyage on June 28, 1939 and later flew routes from the US east coast to Europe and from the US west coast to Pacific and Asian destinations. The outbreak of WW II caught a flight from San Francisco to New Zealand by surprise. They were rerouted to New York by a western route to avoid the risk of a shoot down in the Pacific by then hostile Japanese aircraft. The flight logged some 31,500 miles and was the first commercial flight to circumnavigate the world. The Pan Am fleet was used by the military in WW II to transport troops and material in Europe and the Pacific.
Here is a taste of what it was like to fly the very friendly skies back then. Leg room was not an issue, food was not in little plastic containers and “cattle car” referred to trains for transporting cows not seating arrangements.
Meals were catered by four star hotel kitchens.
Dressing rooms were available for a little touch up.
Seating folded out into bunks with privacy curtains.
The first day of the month 0000Z through the last day of the month 2400Z

G3JFS: This challenge provoked a little nostalgia as I still have faint memories of being shown around a PanAmp clipper at London Airport in the late 1940s when I was 12/13 years old. It was quite a novelty to see the sleeping accomodation and having two decks. I imagine one had to be very rich indeed to travel on that aircraft. Conditions seemed to have been a little better this month. I did not find it too hard to completer the challenge and I even managed to det a couple of DX contacts in the log. 73 Peter. AH6AX: Thanks - another fun challenge! N4OW: Ex PanAm Avioncs Tech -- not in the Clipper era though. 747's yes :) Fun to work this one. 72 de N4ow AK3X: It got down to needing the two "9"s to complete the challenge. There are usually plenty of 9's floating around, but this month I heard none until the 15th of December. Switching through the bands to get back to 40 meters from 20, with a TenTec Argonaut V you have to cycle through all the upper and then lower bands to get there. As I passed through 15 I heard N9RV calling CQ and we had a nice chat. Turns out he was in Montana! Anyway, a fun challenge as usual. 72, Peter K1IEE: Another great challenge. Had much more free time to be on the bands and enjoy the contacts. 73 to all. Merry Xmas to all. Dick K1IEE KI4IO: Finally an entire month where we were not traveling! Got my new home-brew 40 meter transceiver on-line. Will be bringing it to FDIM 2019. Am now building a super-heterodyne transceiver for the 30 meter band. Life is good! K1YAN: My apologies to those who were looking for a QRPp challenge as was originally posted for December. After a couple months of poor conditions with a lot of QSB and QRN it seemed like a better idea to go with this alphabet challenge instead. Another QRPp challenge is in the mix for 2019, hopefully with some better bands. This said, the QRPp sprint tonight will probably feature gangbuster conditions. Merry Christmas to all and to all good DX. AC2C: Another fun challenge !!! WB4OMM: Wow! Got them all! Another great challenge. Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to All! See you next year. 72/73, Steve #5913 KJ4R: Came down to the wire and got my last "R" on 12/30. Best wishes and HNY to everyone! N8XMS: This one took a lot of work but after coming up short the past 2 or 3 months, I was determined to complete it. I collected my final letter (T) on the 30th. I really liked this Pan Am Clipper topic. It reminded me of a QSO that I had many years ago with a former Clipper radio operator. Take a look at my Member Submission item in the December newsletter for more information on that. Happy New Year and 73! NF1U: Another fun month. Additional goal of getting all Ltrs/Nbrs from SKCC Non sprint contacts. Cold/Flu/Christmas slowed me down but made it under the wire. PA0XAW: Thank You for a nice challenge! Happy New Year to All! N9SE: Was working hard the last couple of days of the month to finish up the challenge and I was rewarded with a FB rag chew with W5LNI to snag my last 'L'. WA2FBN: Happy New Year to all. Couldn't find the last couple of letters. Using my new CRKits HT1a 40 and 20 m cw QRP rig. Ant was EFHW up 25 ft. Key was CWMORSE straight key. Thanks for another fun challenge. 72 Ken W2JEK: A GOOD CHALLENGE AND A LOT OF FUN. 72/73 DON
