The Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship will be hosting the Toledo Mobile Radio Association as they take part in Museum Ships Weekend 2019. Museum Ships Weekend (MSW) is an international event hosted by the Battleship New Jersey Amateur Radio Club in Camden, NJ. Individual ham radio operators test their operating skills by calling participating museum ships on which ham radio clubs have set up stations. This year, the Col. James M. Schoonmaker is one of the 81 vessels participating! The members of the Toledo Mobile Radio Association will be stationed in the galley aboard the Schoonmaker, communicating with ham radio operators across the world and educating our visitors about their craft.
