 International Museum Ships Weekend is Saturday June 4 and Sunday June 5 this year.

 We will be activating the US Army Tug LT-5 located at the H. Lee White Maritime Museum in Oswego, NY on both dates from 11AM until 5PM.

Ham radio stations will be setup in an attempt to contact as many of the other museum ships around the country as possible.

 He LT-5 is one of the last remaining tug boats used in the Normandy Invasion during World War 2 in June 1944.

 Stop by and make some contacts.
