Museum Ships Weekend 2012
I’ve got this posted over at the www.na5dv.org site, but since we always have such a good turnout from KARS, I wanted to make sure everyone knew the details and how quickly it’s coming up!
The Battleship TEXAS will be participating in this year’s Museum Ships Weekend 0000Z June 2, through 2359Z June 3, 2012. During the day, we’ll be primarily on the upper bands, 10m/15m/20m. During the evenings we will shift to 20m/40m/80m.
We stay in the General part of the band, and usually on the upper end, wherever we can find a clear spot. We QSL 100%, all we ask is that you please enclose a SASE, and you’ll get a nice full-color QSL card in return. If you include the operator’s name, we’ll do our best to get them to personally sign your card. We usually make quite a few QSOs during the operating period, so that usually results in a LOT of QSL cards to issue. We ask your patience in allowing us time to respond.
Hams (and potential hams!) that wish to operate from the ship are encouraged to come out and enjoy the fun of being on the receiving end of a pileup for a change! In addition, we will be operating 24hrs on the ship, and we have a limited number of overnight spots on the ship. If you want to operate the full stretch with us, we will need advance notice of your intent to stay overnight by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Our activities must be cleared with the TPWD in advance, and we simply are unable to accommodate folks who ask to stay on the ship the day they arrive. Your understanding is appreciated!
