“I will be operating from the deck of the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides) this Saturday July 17 in conjunction with the ‘Museum Ships on the Air’ weekend. Please look for us on 20m and 40m SSB. Here is some more info below. I will be operating while underway in Boston Harbor. This may be a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to work the Constitution maritime mobile.
Museum Ships on the Air Weekend
Museum ships and submarines weekends offers operators a chance to work some rare and unusual stations and collect unique QSL cards and certificates. More than 80 museum ships and subs worldwide are expected to take part in the event, which is sponsored by the USS Salem Radio Club. Club members will operate K1USN aboard the USS Salem (CA-139), the world’s only preserved heavy cruiser, and WW2MAN from the Seehund U boat (U-5075) from their moorings at the US Naval Shipbuilding Museum in Quincy, Massachusetts.
There’s more information, including a listing of vessels planning to participate, on the K1USN web site http://www.qsl.net/k1usn/event.html.
Stations working 10 participating vessels are eligible for a certificate by sending a copy of log pages showing these contacts and a self-addressed, stamped envelope large enough to hold an 8-1/2 x 11-inch certificate (or send $2) to Bob Callahan, W1QWT, 56 Acorn St, Scituate, MA 02066.
