History of Marine Radio as Experienced by Jeff Herman, KH6O
Jim - N6MED
Victimized by 'chasing squirrels" on FaceBook and linked to W3ATB's personal web site. I found this great story on the history of Marine Radio. Mr. Herman was USCG Station Honolulu in 1977. I refer the reader to his bio on the referenced web page.
Those of you who are Morse Code practitioners will likely get more from the video than I did. Regardless practitioner or not, the video is incredibly fascinating.
