I have been fascinated by the whole Titanic disaster since I was a kid. I now have my Generals license and I am wondering if there are any special stations set up this weekend that I might be able to work? Are there any stations that reenactment of the actual transmissions of the disaster?

Thanks everyone!

Worked two so far, EH3MGY and TM5MGY, both on 20m SSB. MGY was the callsign of the Marconi radio station on the ship. The fact that RMS Titanic struck the iceberg on my birthday just adds a bit to the nostalgia.

This side of the Atlantic, there have been many Titanic special event stations operating from various ports of call around the British Isles.
Again, mostly on 40m SSB.
Best of luck catching one! Wink

GR100MGY has been very active, and easy to work from the east coast of the USA.  Good operators, too!  GL!

I just worked W4S in Pigeon Forge, TN at the Titanic Special Event. I still can not find any England stations to work. Do any of you guys have the frequencies they were on? I have been studying the Titanic since I was a kid. So this is really important for me to be involved in the 100th anniversary of the Titanic Sinking.

I've been off the air since the first part of January... long story. 

The post here about the Titanic sparked an interest so went down to the shack and fired up the gear.  Within 10 minutes had worked GW100MGY near London on CW (14,048) and GB100MWT in Chelmsford, England, home of the Marconi Wireless factory. (14,163)

Hope to duplicate these contacts tomorrow the 15th, (the true anniversary) which will really be a nice thing and a nice QSL card to keep.

Try 40m from 7.100 to 7.160 & 20m 14.215 & 14.225 SSB.
Also, if you have access to DXsummit you will see them when they pop up on the cluster.
Best of luck. Wink
