First Ship-To-Shore Satellite Radio Message

While I was writing about Marlink’s Fleet F33 solution, I came accross this historical fact. That’s just 38 years back…. We’ve come a long way so to speak.
“1966 – First ship-to-shore satellite radio message sent from USS Annapolis (AMGR 1) in South China Sea to Pacific Fleet Headquarters at Pearl Harbor.”
