Radio Technical Commission For Maritime Services Annual Meeting
April 2 9 — M a y 1, Boston This year's Annual Assembly Meeting of the Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services (RTCM) will be held at the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston, Tuesday, April 29 through Thursday, May 1.

Two historic tour programs have been planned. The bus tour on Tuesday will include highlights of Boston from Beacon Hill to the new City Hall, the waterfront area, Back Bay, Cambridge, and Faneuil Hall.
On Wednesday the tour will follow the route of Paul Revere as he warned the countryside that the British were coming. It will also include Lexington Green, where Capt. Jonathan Parker and 77 Minutemen stood their ground against 700 of England's finest regulars, and the Old North Bridge where "the embattled farmers stood and fired the shot heard around the world." On both days participants may depart the tour at either Faneuil Hall at noon or the Copley Plaza at 12:15 pm.
