Battleship North Carolina (BB-55) Comes Home

In 1961 the Battleship North Carolina came to Wilmington,NC as a memorial for the 10,000 North Carolinians of all the armed services who gave their lives in World War II.

The North Carolina was commissioned on 9 April 1941, and on 11 July 1942 she arrived at Pearl Harbor. Nicknamed the "Show Boat", she is the most decorated U.S. battleship of World War II having earned 15 battle stars by participating in every major naval offensive in the Pacific from Guadalcanal to Tokyo Bay.

The North Carolina was decommissioned on 27 June 1947.

During the war years the ship's call letters were NIBK. The ship has 7 radio rooms of which two have been restored. Radio 1 (Radio Central) is fully restored while Radio 2 is about 40% restored. The Azalea Coast Amateur Radio Club has been working on the radio rooms and communication equipment on the ship since July,2000.
