HAM Station for the B-17 "City of Savannah"

The equipment for the HAM radio station that we will install in the radio compartment of the B-17 "City of Savannah" has been ordered.  Once the equipment arrives we will install it and run the coax feedline from the compartment thru the left wing and out of the museum to the external antennas.  We will also install the operational BC-348 Reciever and other equipment in preparation for the radio room grand opening on or around July 15th.  The plan is to operate an amateur radio special event from the aircraft and showcase the work that has been done so far.  We have secured the amateur radio callsign WW2COS (World War 2 City of Savannah) from the FCC.  Thing are coming together.
