In June each year, USS Wisconsin participates in the Museum Ships On The Air (MSOTA) weekend. The MSOTA is sponsored by the USS New Jersey Radio Club (NJ2BB). See their website for all details including a list of registered ships:
Saturday June 3rd: 8AM – 5PM Local
Sunday June 4th: 9AM – 4PM Local
Most museum ships will operate SSB or CW in the General class band segments.
The ARRL website lists the following operating frequencies:
SSB: 3860, 7260, 14,260, 18,160, 21,260, 24,960, 28,360, and 50,160 kHz.
CW: 3539, 7039, 10,109, 14,039, 18,079, 21,039, 24,899, 28,039, and 50,109 kHz.
There are 100 ships from all over the world registered for the event this year! All members and non-members are welcome to join in the fun on board the BIG WISKY BB64. We have extended hours in order to accommodate as many participants as possible. If you can’t go to the ship please look for us and the other ships on the bands. It is lots of fun. I will start a sign up sheet via email.
There will be a cruise ship in port Sunday, so there will be lots of people at Nauticus. We will most likely have many visitors.
