I am a big fan of the men and women who make up our Armed Forces. They’ve gone above and beyond for our country so many times – from 1776 right up to the present day. This weekend a really cool super special event is taking place to honor the men and women who have served in the respective navies of all of our countries and the ships that they have served on.
Thanks to the Battleship New Jersey Amateur Radio Station, this weekend has been organized and dedicated as Museum Ships Weekend. 106 restored military ships from around the world, which now serve as museums will be on the air this weekend.

Addendum – I got on the air for a bit tonight and worked seven stations commemorating various ships, some of which are sunk and some of which are museums. Unfortunately, the minority were found to be operating CW, so I had to resort to picking up that little black thingy – I think it’s called a microphone? Anyway, the ships I worked tonight were:
I also worked K1USN, but they’re not on the list of participating ships. So I am just under the halfway point towards earning a certificate.
