USS Hornet

Earlier today, I visited the Hornet museum and attended an amateur radio general class study session and attempted to pass the test to upgrade my license. Though I did fail the test (got only 21 out of 35 questions right, needed 26 to pass), I had a fun time and Rich, KN6FW, was a great instructor and the 16 of us who attended were well informed. My failure is not his and I tbanked him afterwards. 

Here are pictures I took before and after. While within the ship, I had no service. Seems the Hornet acts as a sort of Faraday Cage while below decks. 

Gray skies when I arrived before 0800.
Beautiful carrier
An important plaque
