Museum Ships weekend is coming up in June. (June 2-4)
As mentioned in last week’s general meeting, there will be a workday convening at Seawolf park, at about 9 or 10 on Saturday April 22nd.
Please let me know if you are attending so that I can give a volunteer list to the gate attendants.

We’re generally trying to get the operating stations on the ships up and running, in preparation for the Museum Ships Weekend – June 3-5.
There will also be scouts on board and it would be good form to give them a demonstration of ham radio.

Does anyone have AC power conditioners to lend for the AC mains on the Stewart?
