The Maritime Radio Historical Society (MRHS)

Who We Are

The Maritime Radio Historical Society (MRHS) is a small group of dedicated individuals who share the goals of documenting, preserving and restoring the artifacts of maritime radio history. Our area of specialization is the coast stations, ships and companies of the west coast of the United States. But anything to do with maritime radio anywhere in the world is of interest to us.

Our largest project has been the restoration of ex-RCA coast station KPH which has been returned to operation under the call KSM. The station is on the air each Saturday using both Morse and RTTY. For full details please see the Coast Station KSM section.

Other coast stations were bulldozed almost as soon as they went off the air. By great good fortune the KPH transmit and receive sites are within the Point Reyes National Seashore (PRNS), part of the National Park Service. Exhibiting vision and trust in equal measure the PRNS staff permitted the MRHS to begin work in 1999. We have been on the job ever since.

Dedicated MRHS volunteers are busy with the preservation, restoration and repair of the historic artifacts whith which we have been entrusted. That work is the foundation on which the real goal of our project rests. That goal is to assure that the culture, thechniques and traditions of the men and women who came before us are not forgotten. We feel that the best way to achieve that goal is through actual on the air operations.

We look forward to visits by fellow "true believers" in the importance of the preservation of our radio heritage. Please see the Contact Us section for full detail about visiting us.

We invite you to peruse these pages for details of our work and of radio history.


Quem Somos

A Sociedade Radio Maritime Historical (MRHS) é um pequeno grupo de pessoas dedicadas que compartilham os objetivos de documentar, preservar e restaurar os artefatos da história do rádio marítimo. Nossa área de especialização é estações da costa, navios e companhias da costa oeste dos Estados Unidos. Mas nada a ver com rádio marítimo em qualquer lugar do mundo é de interesse para nós.

Nosso maior projeto foi a restauração da ex-RCA costa estação KPH que tenha sido devolvido à operação sob a KSM chamada. A estação está no ar todos os sábados com as duas Morse e RTTY. Para maiores detalhes consulte o Costa seção KSM Station.

Estações costeiras outras foram demolidas quase tão logo saiu do ar. Por sorte grande a KPH transmitir e receber sites estão dentro do Point Reyes National Seashore (PRN), parte do National Park Service. Exibindo visão e confiança em igual medida a equipe permitiu o PRN MRHS para começar a trabalhar em 1999. Fomos no trabalho desde então.

Voluntários dedicados MRHS estão ocupados com a preservação, restauração e reparação do whith artefatos históricos que nos foram confiadas. Que o trabalho é a base sobre a qual o verdadeiro objetivo do nosso projeto descansa. Esse objetivo é garantir que a cultura, thechniques e as tradições dos homens e mulheres que vieram antes de nós não são esquecidos. Nós sentimos que a melhor maneira de alcançar esse objetivo é através real sobre as operações aéreas.

Estamos ansiosos para visitas de colegas "verdadeiros crentes" na importância da preservação do nosso património rádio. Consulte o Fale Conosco seção para detalhes completos sobre sua visita.
