On Oct 30, Lori KM5MQ will be boarding the Carnival Cruise ship
Conquest on Halloween week and participate in a Ham Radio Cruise!  She
and 25 others have gotten permission to have two Ham Radio HF
Screwdriver antennas installed on the 10th deck railing, near the aft
portion of the ship.  The two stations will be on the 9th deck, under
weather cover.  Listen for Maritime Mobile callsigns beginning with
"HP0", including KM5MQ, AA5R AE5OM, KV5V, and many others!
