One Comment on “Titanic Marconi Club to Activate Stage Harbor Light for National Lighthouse Day, August 7, 2018”
From the Falmouth ARA web site:
“Members of the Titanic / Marconi Memorial Radio Association of Cape Cod were allowed the opportunity to operate from Nobska Light on National Lighthouse Day, August 7th.
“…There were a number of visitors and they stopped by the room we used for operating. Approximately 40 children came with parents. As each group came in three dots were sent out using a practice code oscillator. The visitors–especially the children, were asked if they knew what letter that represented in Morse Code and why it was significant.”
