Museum Ship Weekend

On the weekend of June 4 and 5 amateur radio operators around the world will activate museum ships around the world.  The goal is make people aware of the ships and to make contact with other museum ships and ham radio operators around the world.
In Galveston, we have two museum ships.  The USS Cavala and Stewart.  The Cavala is a submarine and the Stewart is a destroyer escort.  The two ships are located on Pelican Island in Seawolf Park.
The Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club will activate the two ships.  I am honored to be invited to operate with them.  I operated as a guest last year.  This year I should be on phone on Sunday morning.  I am really looking forward to this event.

This is the USS Cavala

Hope to work you!
