Denice Stoops (USA)

I was born in Saginaw, Michigan U.S.A. in 1956. Joined the U.S. Coast Guard in 1974 and went to work as a telegrapher  for   RCA   as   the   first  female operator (T-3)  at  KPH   in  1979.  KPH   closed  in  1997.  I  joined  the radio department on the O’Brien  in  2007  and   upgraded my license to a T-1 to operate the transmitters. In 2009 I was offered a position on   the   SS Lane Victory/KECW and I sailed on her as 2nd R/O in Sept. I currently operate at KSM. 73/88
