Wireless Operators
Jack Phillips & Harold Bride
Even out at sea, Titanic's passengers can send and receive telegrams. Titanic had a Marconi wireless setup in a cabin just behind the bridge. Most other liners had only a single wireless operator on duty, but Titanic had two operators for 24-hour service. 

Jack Phillips and Harold Bride have seen the future in wireless communication. Like many other young men over the last few years, they attended a special school to learn this new trade. Using Titanic's call letters "MGY", Phillips and Bride can broadcast messages 500 to 1500 miles across the ocean.
