For our amateur radio friends the ship's radio room will be in operation as time and work schedules permit during the Pittsburg trip. We will normally monitor 146.520 simplex. In addition we may monitor or operate on
> 3530, 7030, 14.030, 21.030, 28.030, 50.100,
> 3860, 7260, 14.260, 21.260, 28.360, 50.125
> AM 3885 7290
We are also exploring the possibility of APRS for the ship.
We have also added a new email address for the ship's radio room for times when we have Internet access.
We rely on WiFi connections in cities we visit for Internet connections and these are not always plentiful or available near where the ship docks.
For those who don't understand the above, it is just ham radio talk. Like any hobby it has its own jargon. If you would like to join this facinating hobby it is probably not as difficult as you think.
We talk with new friends locally and around the world regularly. Just ask any of our radio operators and they will be glad to tell you how to get started. (are you listening Sea Bat?)
