I also have a QSL card from them. I'd love to visit.

Harry - The Maritime
Radio Historical Society still keeps a commemorative station on
the air as K6KPH at:
PO BOX 392
POINT REYES STATION
I worked K6KPH on 17
Mtr CW just last Saturday, January 11th. I think they are also
frequently active in ARRL events through the year. Long ago, in
the '60s, I spent a full year in the Bay Area but at that time I
was not aware of the history of this station or I would
certainly have visited. I guess at that time it was still in
full commercial operation and visiting may not have been an
option. In those days even Alcatraz was still a functioning
prison! Man....I must be getting OLD!

A touching story and video about the last station on the
Pacific Coast in to handle CW traffic from ships. This
station has been preserved at Point Reyes National Seashore
near San Francisco and is open on weekends. I will be sure to
visit it the next time I'm in the Bay area.
