          Hi all -- here's an interesting radio event coming up soon.  This happens every year, and while not amateur radio, it IS radio, and a :big deal" at that.  This commemorates the end of commercial CW on the maritime bands in most of the Western world.

      Sadly, stations NMC, NMN and NOJ will be unable to participate in Night of Nights this year. Some of the Chiefs who were the driving force behind the return of these stations to CW have retired. Without them it's hard to to motivate station personnel. But... there's always next year!

      Amateur station K6KPH will transmit and listen on 3550, 7050 and 14050kc for KPH, KFS and KSM reception reports.

      Remember, this is a public event. If you are in the area you are invited to join us at the RCA receive site, 17000 Sir Francis Drake Blvd in the Point Reyes National Seashore north of San Francisco. If using a computer mapping program add "Inverness" after the address above even though the station is well beyond that town.

      Doors open at 3:00pm Pacific time. Snacks will be served. Tours of the transmitting station may be arranged for "true believers" by appointment only.
