I'm Speaking at NEAR-Fest XVI, the big 
BoatAnchor Hamfest in New Hampshire 
Friday, October 10, 2014 @ 12:00 Noon 

I will be speaking at NEAR-Fest on Friday at 12-noon. My presentation is really "BIG" and I am happy to present this for you. I think this is a first for Ham Radio. 

Topic: Old Transmissions and Voices from the Past . 

You will hear early Ship-Shore and Ship-Ship 500kc CW Transmissions, and see and hear the voices of the early Ham and Radio Pioneers. You'll hear them tell their own stories; Hear the voices of Marconi, Jack Binns, Irving Vermila, De Forest, Gernsback, Armstrong, Reinartz, Deloy - French 8ab, Elmo Pickerill, Art Collins, General Griswold, and CD Tuska speaking about starting QST magazine. 

You will also hear an actual SOS received by David Ring, N1EA, who was the operator on the Super Tanker "WILLIAMSBURGH" who answered the SOS from the passenger ship "PRINSENDAM" in 1980.
