Museum Ships on the Air 2024

We are honored to join other museum ships located around the world and amateur radio operators participating in the 2024 Museum Ships on the Air Weekend. This is our second year participating in this event with other amateur (HAM) operators in the United States and countries around the world. HAM operators from North Florida Amateur Radio Society (NOFARS) along with guest operators from other organizations will participate. We will be operating with an event call sign K4D and our new Orleck Amateur Radio Society Club (OARS) call sign WA4RC.

Broadcast hours of operation will be from 8:00am Saturday June 1st through 3:00pm Sunday June 2nd. The ship will be open normal hours on those days and your admission ticket will allow you to visit the broadcast locations including Radio Central which is part of the tour route.

Come join us and see HAM radio operators in action and see how may ships we can connect with!
