'The Battleship Iowa Amateur Radio Association.' 

The IOWA is bigger than only BIARA (Battleship Iowa Amateur Radio Association).....

     There are two factions working on radio communications systems aboard IOWA -- BIARA is a 501(c)7 CA corporation with a MOU with the PBC
 (Pacific Battleship Center),  a CA 501(c)3, and is the "face of amateur" radio for the IOWA -- BIARA uses the original military installed

 antennas and currently has two amateur HF stations for the use of it's certified members and qualified guests -- all BIARA members are

 required to be PBC volunteers -- the GRG (Gray Radio Gang) is  comprised  of certified PBC volunteers whose mission is to repair, recommission and reactivate

 the ship's circa Cold War era communications systems -- some volunteers  are members of both groups -- the activation of any of the ship's original installed

 equipment will be on amateur radio frequencies

-- BIARA and the GRG are working cohesively on both efforts and the presentation will show the synergy and differences that all benefit IOWA

-- Doug, W6HB, and Gary, W6GDB, will share their Gray Lady efforts with the ARALB members.....
