Mark your HF future event calendar for the “Museum Ships Weekend” commencing July 19th 0001Z thru 23:59 Z July 21st. Operating modes, and bands, will vary by ship, but all will operate SSB and CW. This will be a QSL card, special certificate event.
Here’s an event that honors the service of both military and merchant vessels that have been preserved as Museum Ships around the world. Here in the Northeast U.S., we’re fortunate to have at least four ships that will be on the air for the event weekend. In fact there are 57 registered participant Museum ships thus far, with more expected to join before the event.
This years event is sponsored by the USS Cassin Young radio group, callsign “WW2DD”. The ship is berthed in Charlestown Navy Yard, directly across from Old Iron Side, and is open to public tours thru the National Park Service. (click on NPS link on ships page below)

If you haven’t worked “Museum Ship’s Weekend” before, be aware it’s more of a challenge than you think to get all the ships. But great fun. Give it a try.
These local ships would also be a great club visit event.
