Events

 

The USS Wisconsin Radio Club, Inc. operates at least four special event stations each year.  We will have at least five in 2019. 


The first is the Wisconsin QSO Party held 10-11 March 2019.  For details, CLICK HERE.


The second is a special one-time event - The 75th Anniversary of the Commissioning of the USS Wisconsin at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on 16 April 1944, in the midst of World War II.  Our commemoration will take place on Tuesday, 16 April 2019.


The third is "Museum Ships On The Air" (MSOTA) which will be held 1-2 June 2019.  For details, CLICK HERE.


The fourth is a commemoration of the Decommissioning of BB-64 when the USS Wisconsin was struck for the third and final time on 30 September 1991.  In 2019, this will be the weekend of 28-29 September 2019.


The fifth is a commemoration of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, which just happens to be the date the ship was delivered to Nauticus in the year 2000.  This event occurs on the weekend closest to December 7th.  For 2019, this will be 7-8 December 2019.   


From time-to-time, we participate in special projects, such as working with the local Scouting community. 


Subject to being in use, our preferred frequencies are in the General Class section of the 20 meter and 40 meter bands.  We use 14.264 Mhz and 7.264  Mhz.  Why?  Because the USS Wisconsin is BB-64.
