KPH (radio station)

KPH is a public coast radio station on the West Coast of the United States. For most of the 20th century, it provided ship to shore communications including telegrams (using Morse code) and marine telex service (using radioteletype). The station discontinued commercial operation in 1998, but is operated occasionally as a historic service - its signal can be tuned in throughout a large portion of the western hemisphere.

(Ship to shore telephone calls were not handled by KPH but by other stations such as the nearby AT&T high seas station KMI.)
