In June each year, USS Wisconsin participates in the Museum Ships On The Air weekend. This event is sponsored by The Battleship New Jersey Radio Station NJ2BB and the USS Wisconsin is registered along with 86 other vessels across the US and Europe.
For 2022, the event was held on Saturday June 4th: 0900AM – 4PM (local time) and Sunday June 5th: 12 Noon – 4PM (local time).
USS Wisconsin Radio club member Walt K4OGO documented the 2022 event on Youtube:
If you want to visit us during the event or would like to work the radios, please join us on the USS Wisconsin 03 level. (To get to our radio shack requires you to climb three flights of steps with the third being quite steep.)
Parking is available in the West Plume garage which is directly in front of the Wisconsin . Bring your parking stubs with you so they can be validated by Nauticus.
We have 3 operating positions, two ICOM 756PRO2’s and the WWII TCS, so everyone should have a chance to put in some air time. If you just want to come down to help out with the visitors that would be appreciated too. Please let me know if you plan to operate or to help out with the visitors.
