US Apollo 11 Special Event

Members of the USS Hornet Amateur Radio Club [HARC], NB6GC, will be on the air this month celebrating the 50th anniversary of the recovery of the Apollo 11 astronauts by the USS Hornet on 24th July 1969.

They will be providing a special QSL card to all stations that work them during the month of July. They will be specifically on the air during 20-21st July 2019, when the USS Hornet museum is celebrating, and they will also be on the air on 24th July 2019 the actual date of the recovery as well.

They will probably be on the air other dates during the month, but these dates are not yet known as they will open up for visitors who request a tour of the radio room and wish to operate.
