USS Oklahoma

USS Oklahoma 
The USS Oklahoma Memorial Amateur Radio Club is holding a Special Event Station WW2OK in memory of the battleship, USS Oklahoma, which was lost along with 429 servicemen when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.  
WW2OK will activate from the War Memorial Park in Muskogee, Oklahoma, from 6pm CST on December 6th and run until 6pm CST on December 7th. Multi-Op and Multi-Band operations will take place in the general portion of the HF ham bands, with all modes and bands, except 60m, possible.
The  largest remaining part of the USS Oklahoma, a section of the mast, is on display at the War Memorial Park in Muskogee, along with the USS Batfish, the World War II submarine built to avenge the losses at Pearl Harbor. 
A special “70th Anniversary” QSL card for contacts made during this event will be available after the first of the year. 
For more information about the event and the QSL cards, see the QRZ website.
