Ham Radio Day aboard the Queen Mary

AMSAT will be supporting the 'Ham Radio Day Aboard the Queen Mary', an on-air event which will include satellite operations from the RMS Queen Mary, on Saturday, 14 December 2019. The Queen Mary is at the Port of Long Beach in California, grid DM03vs.

The satellite operations will take place from the Queen Mary's Sports Deck, next to the W6RO Wireless Room. Visitors are welcome, and hams with a copy of their valid amateur license can board the ship for free on 14 December - a $40 value!

QSL cards will be available from the Associated Radio Amateurs of Long Beach (ARALB), using the process detailed at:

Satellite contacts do not require the QSO number mentioned on this page. W6RO does not use Logbook of the World.

This is the official statement about the event from ARALB:

The Associated Radio Amateurs of Long Beach and the Queen Mary invite you aboard the legendary ocean liner for Ham Radio Day Aboard the Queen Mary on Saturday December 14th. Our world-famous station W6RO will be fully staffed all day. Come visit the station, take a turn as a guest operator, or work us on the air and earn our special 40th Anniversary QSL card.

In addition, we will have the following special activities:
- Static displays of the Queen Mary?s vintage maritime radio equipment.
- On-air demonstrations of ham radio 'go-kits' at locations around the ship.
- Demonstrations of 'eclectic communications gear', including an Aldis lamp and semaphore flags.
- Demonstrations of satellite ham radio, with actual contacts being made through satellites in orbit.

Basic admission to board the ship is FREE for licensed radio amateurs this day. Simply show your current amateur radio license at the Hotel entrance and come aboard!

The free boarding offer is subject to the following restrictions:
- A valid FCC license document must be presented. (QM personnel will not look you up in the FCC database, QRZ, etc.)
- Non-licensed friends and family members are not included.
- Free boarding of the ship does not include admission to the Queen Mary Christmas event.
- Free boarding does not include parking. Normal parking rates apply.

For an alternative, ride the free Long Beach Transit Passport bus, or try LBT's AquaBus or AquaLink boat shuttles to get to the Queen Mary.

We're looking forward to seeing YOU on board! 73
