Marking the Centenery of the sinking of TITANIC

Amateur Radio Station G8JYV is located within 1 nautical mile of the residences of some of the most senior TITANIC crew including her Captain, her Founder, and her Managing Director.

This station would like to commemorate the valiant efforts of Senior Wireless Telegraphist, Jack Phillips, who was trained at the Marconi School in Seaforth just 1 Nautical Mile from G8JYV.

The use of 'nautical miles' for land measurements on this page is intentional as to relate to the maritime theme of this page.

During April 2012, G8JYV was active on HF to commemorated the 100th Anniversary of the tragic loss of Titanic with her crew and passengers. The aim was to bring awareness of the close TITANIC community of Great Crosby (Merseyside) and to remember the eight staff and crew who resided here and for all but one, perished with the Titanic.

Jack Phillips, Senior Wireless Telegraphist, is commemorated for his tireless distress calls
Jack was trained at the Marconi School in Seaforth
