Is there a camera operational aboard ship that we can see? Sure miss the one that was showing the ship in Evansville. If there is one, how do we see it?

No cam aboard ship that can send a live video feed. The cam at the dock is run by the Evansville Courier & Press newspaper.

I'm sure we'll have some good photos to post on the Progress Report page after the ship returns to Evansville.

Some day it would be great to have a camera aboard so everyone can go along on these trips

Actually I should amend my post to say there is a camera onboard the LST that could serve as a live cam and send streaming video, but it is subject to being within a suitable wireless network to work. This is the tough part. Garry Hisel is onboard and he is good at that stuff. He would probably have it working if it was within a suitable wireless range.

You're way over my head on that one, Bob. I'll ask Don Owen to respond.

Putting in on ham radio, would be a fine line. Will have to check , but I do know that there would have to be a ham operator to act ac the control operator if it was allowed.

You are correct, a HAM operator must be present as control operator.

I was thinking the packet HAM radio setup (if it is possible) could be used when the ship is mobile and not in home port.

I was of the understanding the when the ship is out on a cruise, there was a HAM radio operator on board.

Yes that would be possible, might be a problem sometimes. slow scan tv, or just sending out a photo is possible. Just would have to find a local gateway. But it would be worth the trouble.
