Swiftsure is based in Seattle WA at NW Seaport ( www.nwseaport.org/events/ ). Vessel is currently in ship yard, is scheduled to be out of drydock and yard in time for ILLW. However with a vessel over 100 years old can sometimes not make our schedule. We have two plans.

Plan A: Swiftsure is back at NW seaport : Will operate on board tug Author Foss, moored next to Swiftsure. 8/17/2013 1700Z - 2359Z. 20 / 40 SSB. CW & digital possible depending on conditions. Author Foss is open to public, will be interfacing with public as well as operating.

Plan B: Swiftsure still in yard : In that case AD7BF & KC7YE will operate from shipyard parking lot in van, no public access. Same hours.

QSL via AD7BF or KC7YE.
Do check out the link to NW Seaport, lots of good info.

Operation is a go!

Swiftsure still in yard, no surprise there. However vessel is less then 500 yards from NW Seaport, in spirit of event will operate from tug as planned. Call this plan "A" MK1
Have just returned from visit, and meeting with NW Seaport. Will set up in either Captains cabin or galley IC 718, AH4 tuner, random wire to forward mast signal halyard.

Ok conditions stunk, just a handful of contacts. Many visitors and explained amateur radio to many who were passing through galley. Have been invited back for next year. Swiftsure comes out of dry dock and back at museum 8/21. Couple of new pictures posted yesterday by museum. wwwnwseaport.org
