Smithsonian’s NN3SI to QRT during museum renovations

— submitted to by Murray Green, K3BEQ

NN3SI, the Amateur Radio station exhibit at the Smithsonian Institutes’s National Museum of American History in Washington, DC, will QRT in late August while the museum undergoes renovations that will include the ham station. The museum is scheduled to reopen by the summer of 2008. Inaugurated in 1976 and supported by a volunteer staff, NN3SI occupies a corner in the “Information Age” exhibit on the first floor of the National Museum of American History, and it’s been open daily for visiting radio amateurs to operate.

I was a guest op at NN3SI earlier this year.
