In Memoriam - AD4PT

Pictured is a piece of history. Part of the recently disassembled 500 kHz distress frequency receiving antenna
that stood in place and served on watch for over 60 years at the US Coast Guard Communications Station
Honolulu - NMO. Together with many generations of US Coast Guard Radiomen this feed point
insulator stood a continuous vigil over many decades always listening, never failing, and
"Always Ready" to hear and put into motion a Coast Guard lifesaving response across the large expanse
of Pacific Ocean.
