I'm Speaking at the ARRL 100th in Hartford
July 18 or 19, 2014

I will be speaking at the 100th, on Friday or Saturday. You'll have to check the schedule when it is finalized for the exact day and time. My presentation is really "BIG" and I am happy to present this for you. I think this will be a first for Ham Radio.

Topic: Old Transmissions and Voices from the Past.

You will hear early Ship-Shore and Ship-Ship CW Transmissions, and what some of the early Ham and Radio Pioneer voices sounded like, including the voices of Marconi, Jack Binns, Irving Vermila, De Forest, Paul Godley, Armstrong, Reinartz, Orin Brown, Elmo Pickerill, Art Collins, General Griswold, and CD Tuska speaking about starting QST magazine.

My Co-Presenter is David Ring, N1EA, who was the operator on the "WILLIAMSBURGH" who answered the SOS from the passenger ship "PRINSENDAM" in 1980. You'll hear that cw SOS.
