"Museum Ships Radio Weekend".
« on: June 06, 2008, 09:52:18 AM »
Rick, you may or may not know that this weekend is the "Museum Ships Radio Weekend".  I'm sure our hams will be out in force calling "CQ" to other ships and boats to "put us on the map"... <cough>.  My concern is the 5-element dipole on the deck.  They might throw a fit, but we absolutely do not want them to operate through that antenna with us in the vicinity - even 15 watts exposure would be bad over 8 hours.  They're going to have to use the antennas on the "shore".  RF radiation is nothing to mess with.  Hopefully, they understand that Batfish maintenance takes priority over play time.

Regards,
