USS Hornet Tour and HARC Meeting
I’ve set a tour of the USS Hornet for June 6th. This is the HARC,
Hornet Amateur Radio Club monthly meeting. The meeting starts at 1200.
It lasts for about an hour.
That weekend is also MUSEUM SHIPS WEEKEND EVENT
0000Z June 6, 2020 to 2359Z June 7, 2020
This event is sponsored by the Battleship New Jersey, amateur radio club.
There is a list of ships participating. this can be found in the above link for
There are two parts to this event:
First……. If you want to go to the Hornet………… be one of 20 to signup.
They can only accommodate 20. Sign-up HERE.
There will be plenty of opportunity to operate. Any license class can
participate, as long as there is a control operator there………All FCC rules apply.
Second……..You can participate from your QTH. See event link.
Caveat……….The Radio Shack is two decks up from the main deck.
To get there there are two ladders,stairs, to go up. These are somewhat steep.
There chains that act as railings. This is the way ships are constructed.
There is an escalator that can be taken. However, you will have to take
a ladder down. It is easier to go down……..than up.
The HARC is looking forward to our participation!
