It's Night of Nights Time Again!

More details when we get them. 
From R. Dillman:
Night of Nights 2013 will take place on 12 July (Pacific time).  

Coast stations KPH, KFS and our own KSM will be on the air.  Most frequencies will be activated with vintage transmitters.  Plus we have just be informed that US Coast Guard station NMC will be on the air.  We hope (but can't yet confirm) that WLO and KLB will be on the air as well.

This annual event, sponsored by the Maritime Radio Historical Society (MRHS), commemorates the sending of what was supposed to be the last commercial Morse message in North America.  But one year and one minute later we returned KPH to the air, picking up the thread and keeping the faith with the men and women who went before us and made the profession of radiotelegrapher one of honor and skill.  Every year since that first Night of Nights we have recognized and honored our heritage by returning these stations to the air on all marine frequencies from MF to HF.  And our amateur station, K6KPH, will be on the air as well.
