Point Reyes National Seashore

Tiffany Camhi

Point Reyes National Seashore is home to one of the most historic morse code radio stations in the United States. In 1999, it became the last commercial station to send and receive morse code messages. But a group of dedicated volunteers are keeping the tradition, and the station, alive. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports.

KPH opens its doors to visitors every Saturday from Noon - 4p.m. Check the Maritime Radio Historical Society website for upcoming events at the station. Night of Nights occurs only once a year on July 12th.

For years history buffs and archeologists have said Drakes Bay, in Marin County’s Point Reyes National Seashore, is the first North American landing site of the English sailor Sir Francis Drake. In 2012, the U.S. Department of Interior officially recognized the bay as a National Historical Landmark. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports now the site is getting attention again with a new plaque commemorating the historical event.
