This year the Grid Square is FN41xr.

This is a relatively new radio group to promote and preserve radio history by preserving the memorial call sign of the HMS Titanic.

We urge you to check out the many facets of this disaster especially as it relates to the significance of radio today and possible links to current emergency radio services. There is a wealth of information available on line about Jack Phillips ( senior radio operator of the Titanic) and the disaster itself. In researching, it is amazing how much relates to radio practices today.

Come explore and enjoy. And hopefully we’ll meet on the air waves, 73
