QSL via AD5WB with SASE

If you tried to work us yesterday, thank you.  Conditions were really challenging on our end.  We were told that there were lots calling but we really had a difficult time pulling stations out.  At times we went 10 - 15 minutes with out working anyone.  The dockside stations also had some problems with an intermittent (s5-s7 ) noise.  We had four hf stations on the air and a 2 meter rig for a local net.  But the results for the day were extremely disappointing.  We ended the day with approximately 150 Q's. 

If we were able to work you, congratulations!  For those we could not hear, thank you for calling!!

Today we will have 3 hf stations on the air.  There weather forecast is calling for rain until midday.  Radar does not look that bad currently.  But, it is before SR locally and the sun has yet to heat things up.  So....operations will be somewhat weather dependant for the first part of the day.  Still we hope to hear you and get you in the log.  Thanks and very 73.  Leslie

Here are our hf operating frequencies:

Station 1: 14.037.08. CQing

Station 2:   14.250 CQing 

Station 3: 



QSL via AD5WB with SASE

We are just a couple of hours away from getting onthe air for MSWE, weather permitting.

The weather conditions have been shifting very fast all week.

If all goes well we will have at least 3 hf stations on the air today and tomorrow.

Look for us locally on 147.14O repeater at 2:00 pm today and maybe tomorrrow.  We should have at least 3 ships on the net.

Here are our hf operating frequencies:

Station 1: 7.24 MHz. Calling CQ

Station 2:  14.262 MHz

Station 3:  18.160 MHz

Station 4:  14.0375 MHz cw 

Hope to hear you in the pileups.

Look for us on CW this year.  

We will post our operating frequencies on this page.

Hope to hear you in the pileups!


Leslie, ad5wb


I am pleased to report that we have once again received permission to use special event callsign N5E for MSWE.

We look forward to hearing you in the pileup!


Leslie, ad5wb


Thank you to all the folks that called us.  Conditions were challenging.  I hope we were able to work you.  A big thanks to the crew of the Elissa, Texas Seaport Museum and Galveston Historical Foundation.  We could not have done this event without your help and blessings.  You can find out more about the Elissa, The Texas Seaport Museum and the Galveston Historical Foundation at this link:  http://www.galvestonhistory.org/

6/4/16, 4:11pm local

Off to a slow start, but up and operating! Stations busy on 40m, 20m, and 17m.

Weather forecast looks great for a full day of operating tomorrow. If you can't get through to us today, fingers crossed we can get you in the log tomorrow! 73s and happy ship hunting!


Due to strong thunderstorms in the area we are planning on a 12:00 (local) meeting time at the Elissa.  It is our hope to operate as long as we can this afternoon.  The stations in the RV can operate until they decide to go home.  If the weather permits us to set up dockside, that station must be QRT and packed up, no later than 17:00 (local).  We hope to hear you in the pileups.  

73, Leslie, ad5wb


Expected bad weather is forcing to variations to the plan.

It looks like we will be operating from an RV in the parking lot in view of the Elissa.  This may mean fewer stations on the air as we possibly "dodge" thunderstorms.

None the less, we are ready to put the Elissa on the air and look forward to hearing you in the pileup!  We should also be on the local 147.14 repeater.


Leslie, ad5wb


Just received formal word that we will be dockside at the Elissa for Museum Ships Weekend!

Look forward to hearing you in the pileups!




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.
