Thanks to Tom/AJ4UQ, this past Sunday I got the chance to play radio once again on the USS Yorktown operating as WA4USN. This time Connie/NR4CB/@Bionic_Nerd was there and we managed to work almost 40 contacts from 4 countries including St. Croix and Croatia (Connie was doing most of the working). I think 4 or 5 of the contacts were me operating. Whenever Connie got on the air there would be people piling up to make contact.
I also got on the air using my own call sign, but wasn't getting any responses back. Still working on getting used to talking on the radio, but Connie was a big help with prompting me on what I should say.
It was a lot of fun getting to play HF radio again. Looking forward to getting my own rig set up one of these days.
