Maritime Radio Day is held annually in the month of April, the month of the sinking of the TITANIC in 1912, the ship having struck the iceberg on 14th April and finally sinking in the early hours of 15th April. Despite the massive loss of life, radio is acknowledged to have been responsible for the rescue of those who survived.

Each year Maritime Radio Day remembers and celebrates the work of the Radio Officer onboard merchant ships, a Merchant Navy Officer officer post which disappeared in 1999 with the coming of the GMDSS.
