Just read the article - very interesting about that possible "hack" reprimand response.

Amazing to have the original document down at The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras. Thumbs up

Back in those days radio was pretty much a simple high power transmitter and they had no channels or frequency tuners and such as today. They used spark gap radios that basically transmitted on ALL frequencies at the same time. It was very crude and only one person could transmit at a time and all others had to wait and listen. Operators would get mad at others that transmitted since it blocked what the other station could hear. Think of it like an old party line phone.

My understanding was one had to be quite pedantic and timely to transmit. As in, you had your appointed time and allotment of time, after which you indicated whether you were finished or were up for any Q n A. It had to follow a schedule to allow for the flow of information. Emergency services must have been a challenge!
