USS Iowa

USS Iowa docked in Richmond, CA

This is a last minute heads-up:

The W6BB Amateur Radio Club at the University of California, Berkeley has been invited to operate aboard the Battleship, 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.

73!
