Amateur radio event from USS Nautilus/Sub Force Museum
« on: March 23, 2009, 01:51:14 PM »
I had the distinct pleasure of ramrodding an amateur radio special event station that operated from the Submarine Force Museum in Groton...and mere steps away from USS Nautilus.  It was last August, on the 50th anniversary of Nautilus reaching the North Pole.  I did a write-up on the event that may be of interest to submarinemuseums.org members, and especially those who happen to be amateur radio operators.

You can read it (and see some photos) here: http://www.donkeith.com/n4kc/N9N.htm

The publication "K9YA Telegraph" also had an article about the event in their March issue.  It's a free publication, but you have to go to www.k9ya.org to sign up to be able to download it as a PDF.
