Welcome to the W4AVM Website
W4AVM is the ham radio club on the
S S American Victory - one of only 3 Victory Ships still sailing.
The 100 watt club station, W4AVM, is often on the air, especially on weekends, with ICOM and Yaesu Radios, MFJ manual tuners, a G5RV antenna at about 110' above the water and a 10m - 40m vertical mounted on the 03 deck. During the November 2007 one day cruise, W4AVM worked about 350 stations throughout the USA and the World. The latest cruise on 24 March 2012 was a great success, passing over 73 actual CW messages from passengers and loads of Phone contacts from the Ham shack.
