THE USS Wisconsin Radio Club
The purpose of the USS Wisconsin Radio Club is to promote public interest in the Battleship USS WISCONSIN, BB-64, the United States Navy, Nauticus National Maritime Center, the Hampton Roads Naval Museum and Norfolk, Virginia. We serve as volunteer Goodwill Ambassadors for the Tidewater community. We strive to display our wonderful hobby, Amateur Radio, to the public in a favorable way and to help educate young people about Radio Communication and its usefulness to the Navy. By means of “Ham Radio” many persons throughout the United States and the world will learn about the presence of this great ship in our Historic Seaport. Our services are provided without charge.
