The USS Batfish, a World War II submarine that's dry-docked in Muskogee, Oklahoma, and the USS Oklahoma Amateur Radio Club recently took a major hit during a severe storm on July 14th 2016. The club lost its radio tower, its tri-band, 4 element beam, and a 40 Meter quarter wave vertical on the boat, and needs your help to replace them. It also received damage to some of the wire antenna supports, causing damage to the 80 Full Wave Loop. This is in addition to the damage received to the Muskogee War Memorial Park property and the 60 foot flag pole. The USS Oklahoma ARC is a small club which was formed to promote amateur radio, preserve the history of the United States military and proudly honor those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The damage to the tower and antennas is too great to repair, and these will all need to be replaced. Funds raised will be used to purchase a replacement tower and antennas for the club, with any additional funds being used to support repairs to the Museum. You can donate through PayPal, or GoFundMe. If you have a PayPal account, you can visit the PayPal link for the fund – it will show a photo of Gary W5ODS who is the club treasurer..https://www.paypal.me/BatfishTowerProject Or you can go to the GoFundMe page at: https://www.gofundme.com/ussBatfishARC?ssid=747486833&pos=1&pc=d_r_don1307_v2c Any which way you do it, your donations are not tax deductible, but are most appreciated and very much needed! Remember, the next major operating event for the club will be the first weekend in December for the 75th Anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, which is where the USS Oklahoma was lost, and the entry of America into World War II and why the Batfish was built.
