We have our callsign secured for next June (Museum Ships Weekend) to activate the 1877 Tall Ship Elissa.
Look forward to hearing you in the pileups!
Our log has been sent to the Battleship New Jersey group.
There is a write up on the activation on my blog. It includes statistics, photos and videos as well as information on the Texas Seaport Museum. The write up is located here: http://ad5wb.blogspot.com/2015/06/activation-of-1877-tall-ship-elissa-for.html
I hope you enjoy.
Just a brief update on N5E.
Our operator list expanded to include Dave, AE5CG.
All QSL requests received through 6/13/15 will go out in Monday's mail.
In difficult conditions, we made 675 unique contacts. I hope you were one of them.
The log is now uploaded to LOTW and Clublog.
In the next few days I will post some photos and videos to my blog from the activation.
On behalf of all the operators, our thanks to Mark, the bosun for making the event possible, and the entire volunteer crew of the Elissa for the opportunity to put such a beautiful ship on the air.
Thank you to the Texas Seaport Museum and the Galveston Historical Foundation. Without you the Elissa would not have a home and be a working sailing vessel today.
To those of you who called us this weekend, thank you.
I hope we were able to get you in the log. Conditions were challenging in a variety of ways.
Thank you for your patience with us.
