KPH, the famous ex-RCA coast station located north of San Francisco, returned to the air for a commemorative broadcast on 13 July at 0001 GMT (12 July at 1701 PDT), 2 years and one minute after the last commercial Morse transmission in North America. Commercial operators, including former members of the KPH staff, were at the keys.
The second annual "Night of Nights", as the event has become known. Last year the transmitters and receivers were both located at the transmitting station in Bolinas, CA. Since then the receiving station at Pt. Reyes, CA has been largely restored. This year several operating positions were activated at Pt. Reyes and the transmitters in Bolinas will be keyed remotely, just as was done when the station was in daily operation.
