World War II Tank Landing Ship LST-325 this week completed its 4200-mile journey from the Greek island of Crete to Mobile, Alabama. Executive Officer Jack Carter, KC6WYX, using the WW2LST call sign of the USS LST Amateur Radio Club, has operated an onboard 100 W rig on 20-meter SSB throughout the voyage and worked several stations in the US and elsewhere along the way. According to a report in Stars and Stripes, 29 sailors--men in their 60s, 70s and older--signed on, determined to deliver this ship to a permanent berth in Mobile to be used as a floating museum. Most of the sailors are US Navy retirees. Each paid $2100 for the privilege of reliving some of the excitement of their Navy years. Carter, a 71-year-old retired electrical engineer, told Stars and Stripes he's feeling better now than he has in 12 years. He also expressed the hope that he and his crew might serve as a motivation for other seniors to embark on their own journeys. The group received more than $70,000 in private donations to repair the ship. British Petroleum and Phillips Oil Company donated a substantial amount of fuel and money toward the venture. Additional details of the voyage are on the US LST Memorial/Museum Ship web site.
