Vessel with Rich Ham History — the Bowdoin — Being Refurbished for Further Exploring
#1
The schooner Bowdoin, which has a prominent place in early Amateur Radio history, will be relaunched this spring. The vessel relied on Amateur Radio operators for communication during explorer Donald B. MacMillan’s Arctic Expedition of 1923 and on the MacMillan-McDonald-Byrd Expedition of 1925. Now it’s undergoing extensive renovation and refitting in Maine. Named after MacMillan’s alma mater, Bowdoin College, the Bowdoin today is the official vessel of the State of Maine and the flagship of Maine Maritime Academy’s Vessel Operations and Technology Program, which readied the vessel for refitting last year.
