Join us for Museum Ships Weekend! MUSEUM SHIPS WEEKEND is an Amateur Radio Special Event in which amateur radio operators and clubs set up amateur radio stations at museum ship sites to communicate with other amateur radio stations to commemorate
the represented vessels.
The event is held annually the first weekend in June and is open to Museum Ships/Museums world wide. In 2022, 89 ships from the US, Canada, Germany, Russia, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, Australia, Spain, Italy and France were registered for the Event.
The current run of participation by the USS Silversides has been continuous since 2017 with the exception of 2020 when the event was cancelled due to Covid.
In the 2022 Event, 263 contacts were made by the USS Silversides Station (N8SUB), representing 40 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. A total of 25 OSL* requests were received and answered.
The 2023 Event is scheduled for June 3 and 4, 2023. The “crew” consisting of Dennis Dufford (W8VN), Matt Kervin (KE8QQB), Kirk Nygren (KO8Z),
and Stacy Van Buren (W8SEV) are looking forward to another year of “activating” the USS Silversides (N8SUB).
