Photographed on Kodiak Island in the summer of 1996.  ..'Hello all mariners, hello all mariners, this is WBH-Two-Nine Kodiak.'.-- Peggy Dyson. Prior to the advent of faxes, email and cell phones, mariners throughout the North Pacific listened up when they heard WBH-29 Kodiak -- aka Peggy Dyson -- on the radio..In fact, they depended on it. Twice a day, every day for 25 years, Dyson broadcast the marine weather and personal messages to those at sea from her home in Kodiak on her single sideband radio. (© Karen Ducey)
