    This will vary based on the activation. The Facebook group should be the best way to stay in touch. There's email info, and phone numbers that should be able to help. "Like" the page, and you'll see the activations as they happen.

    Neat story, thanks for sharing. I have a QSL card from the USS Batfish.

    Oh that's sounds neat Jeff; I'm sure your Son and the rest of the boys had a blast! We took two different Alabama Tours, which got us around to whatever was accessible via tour at the time. Then the Drum experience. The Alabama being the sister ship of the South Dakota BB57, we made a day of it. Going through the SD memorial in Sioux Falls lacks the Awesomeness Factor of actually climbing through these warships... There's only pieces, photos and videos of as the Ship was scrapped long ago. Craig and I look forward to venturing to the USS Iowa someday. I did talk to the Iowa on HF during one of their Ham Radio activations in 2017

    I love motor yachting or being on a pleasure cruise, however serving on one of those submarines is way beyond anything I can imagine. As an adult I got the creeps on the submarine ride at Disneyland... :confused:

    Nice work by a great group of YLs! They even had a piper play on board to commemorate the lost subs.

    Find a copy of "Final Patrol" by Don Keith, N4KC.
    The story of 17 WWII submarines that have become museums.

    When we were on, we were posting our frequencies on several sites. I am sure they will do the same in November.

    A good friend of mine, KS4Q is the son of one of the skippers of the Batfish during the war. He and I were in the submarine service together, me on the Bashaw SSK 241.
