Special Events to Commemorate 95th Anniversary of Titanic Tragedy

NEWINGTON, CT, Apr 4, 2007 -- Several Amateur Radio special event operations are scheduled to mark the 95th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

The "unsinkable" White Star Line passenger vessel was on its maiden voyage from Liverpool, England, to New York City when it struck and iceberg and sank early on April 15, 1912.

More than 1500 people perished, while some 700 passengers in 19 lifeboats were rescued by the RMS Carpathia, whose radio operator copied the frantic "SOS" transmitted by MGY radio operator Jack Phillips as the Titanic foundered.
