Subject: KPH Broadcast: Time and Frequencies
> As I mentioned in my previous message the historic ex-RCA and
> Marconi coast station KPH will return to the air for a commemorative
> broadcast on 12 July using its original transmitters, frequencies and
> antennas. Here is the time and frequency information for those who
> may want to tune in:
> Time: 5:01pm Pacific time 12 July, 0001 GMT 13 July
> Frequencies, HF: 4247.0, 6477.5, 8618.0, 13002.0, 17016.8 Mc/s
> Frequencies, MF: 500, 426 kc/s
> The broadcast on HF will start with the KPH V marker followed on HF
> and 500 kc/s with a CQ advising listeners that a commemorative
> broadcast will follow. These will be sent using a Boehme keying
> head reading punched paper tape.
> The commemorative messages will be sent by hand on HF and 426
> kc/s by veteran operators who actually stood watch at KPH, KFS,
> NMC and other coast stations.
> The cycle will repeat, probably every half hour, so that all operators
> will be able to get in some key time. Listen particularly for the sine
> of each operator so you will know who is sending. We expect to
> remain on the air until about midnight Pacific time.
> Good listening!
