Titanic Commemoration - W1MGY

Well here is an opportunity to play radio for a few days. I had thought that since we cannot get together for the Titanic event at the Cape Cod seashore, we could operate from our home QTHs as some of us did for Marconi Day. And then compile all the logs together   if you send me your operating files. I have merged them together before, but don't quite remember how I did it. I'm sure there are a couple of you out there that could refresh my memory.   I had thought about operating around the clock from the time the Titanic left Queenstown until the time she sank beneath the surface.
