by Press Release-Battleship New Jersey | Jun 12, 2005
Ham Radio Event on Battleship Representatives from the US Power Squadron will be participating in a special Ham Radio event on Saturday and Sunday, June 11th and 12th. The BNJARS (Battleship New Jersey Amateur Radio Station) is sponsoring the event, which will be open to visitors touring the Battleship New Jersey. Visitors to the ship can even get a chance to communicate with other vessels. Free Battleship posters will also be given out, while supplies last. The event will take place in the ship’s restored communications room, located on the general tour route. In addition to operating the station, USPS members will be available to discuss USPS and amateur radio with the public. USPS services and membership information will also be available.

Organized in 1914, USPS is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to making boating safer and more enjoyable by teaching classes in seamanship, navigation and related subjects. Our members are boating families who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating through education. We enjoy participating with our fellow members on the water and in the classroom. USPS has some 60,000 members organized into 450 squadrons across the country and in some US territories. USPS is America's largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three US presidents for its civic contributions. For more info on US Power Squadron visit www.usps.org.

Located on the Camden Waterfront across the river from Center City Philadelphia the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial offers guided and self-guided tours daily, beginning at 9 am with the last tour departing at 5pm. In addition to daytime tours, families and youth groups can spend the night aboard the Battleship as part of the overnight encampment program. Guests experience dinner and breakfast served from the chow line in the crew’s mess, a tour of the ship, a ride on the 4D flight simulator and the opportunity to sleep in the bunks that the crew of the USS New Jersey once did. Special group packages and event/meeting space are available. For more information, call 856-966-1652 or visit www.battleshipnewjersey.org.
