Night of Nights 2011- Event Information
Each year the MRHS commemorates 12 July 1999, the date on which the supposed last commercial message was sent in the US. On that date we pick up the thread, keep the faith and maintain the traditions of maritime  radio communications so that the skills and traditions of all the  radiotelegraphers who came before us will be maintained.

While MRHS station KSM is on the air every Saturday, on Night of Nights we originate stations KPH and KFS in addition to KSM. We will joined on the air by KLB, WLO and KKUI. See below for details.
You can participate by listening or by visiting the ex-RCA receive site to see the action in person. If you'd like to operate K6KPH  just bring your key. No license required!

Here are the details of the event:

Date: 12 July 2011 Pacific time, 13 July gmt
Doors open: 3:00pm Pacific time
 On air time: 5:01pm Pacific time, 0001 gmt

Station and frequency information (subject to change):

Peace!

Here San Luis Obispo, California; I have: "Night of Nights" 2011  13 July 00:01 gmt ...

KPH  4247 kHz  00:01 UTC

KLB 8582.5 kHz  00:11 UTC

KKUI  12,552.0  kHz  01:29 UTC  SS American Victory  Calling CQ  ... can somebody please verify?

WLO  8658 kHz  01:29 UTC

KFS  12695.5 kHz  01:39 UTC 

KPH/KSM  6474 kHz  03:43 UTC

Early on Bands were noisy: Continuum Noise and Static Crashes. After Dark conditions I thought were not too bad for the Summertime. I listened for about four hours. I thought this "Night of Nights" was pretty darn good...looking forward toward next year.
