This picture was taken inside the radio room of the World War Two Submarine USS COD SS-224.
The USS COD is a Gato Class Fleet Type submarine.
Her original Navy callsign is NECO and now operates under the Amateur Radio callsign W8COD.
The USS COD is permanently docked in Cleveland, Ohio, along the south shore of Lake Erie near the new Cleveland Browns Statium, Burke Lakefront Airport and the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame.
She now serves as a Museum Ship and Memorial to the 3900+ men who have given their lives to the Silent Service and remain on eternal patrol.
The USS Cod Amateur Radio Club (W8COD) is a loose knit group of amateur radio operators who love the boat as much as they love radio and try to keep her on the air as much as possible.
You can learn more about the USS Cod and even take a virtual tour by visiting the Cod's web site at: www.usscod.org.
