USS Yorktown back on the air!
-Fred Hambrecht W4JLE/NNN0AAGOn
May 14, 2011 the call sign NWKJ will be heard on the airwaves for the first time in
forty one years. Yorktown will be activated by South Carolina Navy Marine Corp MARS
members as well as operators from other states in Region Four for the annual military
cross band test. Yorktown has been the site for WA4USN on the amateur bands under the
auspices of the Charleston Amateur Radio Society; however this will be the first use of
Yorktown’s military call since its decommissioning. It required that Yorktown be relisted
in ACP 113 to allow the use of the “Fighting lady’s” military call on military frequencies.

Yorktown will be operating on the following frequencies:
USS YORKTOWN (CV-10) (14 MAY 1200Z - 15 MAY 0400Z)
FREQUENCY EMISSION AMATEUR BAND
4010.0 KHZ LSB 80M
7348.0 KHZ LSB 40M
14478.5 KHZ USB 20M
20994.0 KHZ USB 15M
POC: Fred Hambrecht NNN0GBS
ADDRESS: 129 Indian Trace Court
Gilbert, SC 29054
COMMERCIAL: 803-657-3602

Listen on the listed frequency and the operator will announce the frequency he is listening to in the ham band. You will transmit on that frequency. This is a point of confusion to many new hams.

Thanks for the heads up on this station. I made contact with NWKJ, and now the wait begins for the QSL card. 73'
