This is a last minute heads-up:
The W6BB Amateur Radio Club (http://www NULL.w6bb NULL.org/) at the University of California, Berkeley has been invited to operate aboard the Battleship, USS IOWA (BB-61) (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/USS_Iowa_(BB-61)) as final preparations are completed to depart for her new home as a museum ship in San Pedro, CA.
We will have a small contingent of W6BB operators onboard and will be working CW, SSB and PSK modes. Bands will likely be 15/20/40m, others as conditions allow.
Date and time, 5/18/2012 from 1300-1930 PDT (2000 UTC 20120518 through 0230 UTC 20120519 ) .
We would very much appreciate being spotted on the Clusters.
For those of you who are able to work us, there will be a special QSL card for this one time W6BB on BB-61 operation.
Please pass the word around.
