Ship-to-Shore CommunicationThe remaining antenna fields and buildings in front of you were established by two cutting-edge worldwide communications companies in 1931. American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T) radio-telephone station KMI provided two-way voice services between ships at sea or aircraft and telephones on land, sea, or in the air. The Radio Corporation of America's (RCA) station KPH provided commercial communication services to ships at sea through Morse code. Both assisted ships by broadcasting weather and gave top priority to distress calls, providing lifesaving services to ships at sea.
