CARS has set up an operating day at the club station, WA4USN, on board the USS Yorktown for this year's ARRL Rookie Roundup (SSB). For Rookie Roundup purposes, a Rookie is someone who was licensed in the current year, or within the past 2 years (2013, 2014, or 2015). If you're a rookie or new ham and want to experience the HF side of amateur radio or just want to operate from the club station (it's a pretty neat place to play radio from), this is your chance!
The club room will be open starting at 1PM, April 19. Rookie Roundup starts at 2PM EDT and goes to 759PM EDT (1800 - 2359 UTC). If you're interested, drop me a note and I'll put you in touch with the proper people.
That's not a rookie, check out this one (bottom of page 2: http://www.arrl.org/files/file/ContestResults/2012/2012-08-RR-Results.pdf)
The rules for RR are that the group operate under a rookie callsign, so first comer wins. WA4USN is hardly a rookie call :-)

Good point. Whoever shows up should thumb wrestle or something to decide who's call sign will be used :)
