Governorís Proclamation for
Amateur Radio Week

Vicksburg Amateur Radio Club members Drew (KG5OVR) and Bill (W5WAF) work stations during the Museum Ships on the Air event, June 4, 2022. Most activity occurred on the 20 meter band, which was successfully worked with a Buddipole antenna deployed on the pilot deck (view astern of the pilot house). The Motor Vessel Mississippi IV (upper inset) was a working towboat, but also served as the flagship for the Mississippi River Commission from the 1960s to the 1990s. Retired in 1993, the vessel now serves as a museum exhibit, providing visitors a look at life aboard and the effect the vessel had along the Mississippi River (photos courtesy of W5VMS)
