Using his ham know-how, he managed to stay on the air using improvised equipment, antennas, and power, even after the radio room was flooded.

Another fascinating segment of "A Century of Amateur Radio and the ARRL" from Al Brogdon (W1AB).  Al continues his exploration of ham radio in the 1950s, including amateur radio service during the Korean War; the heroic exploits of ship captain Kurt Carlsen (W2ZXM/mm),, who stayed with his sinking ship, relaying vital information, until he was rescued; the birth of the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES); and the development of "extreme" mobile antennas.  Great series overall.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
