You do not need to be an AuxComm Unit member to participate in this exercise or have previously participated.
This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone again at the event this year.
Amateur radio operators from the Montrose Amateur Radio Club and
the American Legion Amateur Radio Club Post 73 are participating in the
upcoming Museum Ships Weekend amateur radio event by putting the USS Montrose
Memorial on the air. Members of both clubs will operate an amateur radio
station from near the memorial on South First Street, Montrose on June 1 and 2,
2019 as part of the world-wide event sponsored by the Battleship New Jersey
Amateur Radio Station. This is the second year that the USSS Montrose
Memorial will participate in this event.
The event encourages ham radio operators around the world to
contact as many of the participating museum ships as possible, learn the
history of the ships contacted, and commemorate both the ships and those who
served upon them. There are currently over 100 ships from around the
world participating in the event.
The USS Montrose Memorial, consisting of the ship’s bell and an
interpretative plaque, is located adjacent to the Montrose City Hall. The
amateur radio station will be located across the street from the memorial and
just west of the Montrose Police Department.
While the station will continue to operate during the night, the
public is encouraged to visit the station during the day Saturday and
Sunday. There will be an opportunity to learn about the USS Montrose, its
history of service during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, and to see amateur
radio in operation.
For additional information contact Lew French, 970-417-6142, visit
