    I quite agree, that's a grave site I think and there are enough clever people out there that could build a sufficiently accurate replica for display/demonstration purposes.

    I agree that the money would be better spent building a replica, there are pictures to go by. All they will get from the ship are a few metal pieces in poor conditioin that are still there.

    Hollywood could construct A very good copy of what they see in the pictures and live visual by W0PV. He (W0PV) has said the roof could collapse at any minute.
    I for One would not want another body on the wreck. There are enough bodies there now .
    So in my humble opinion , visit , photograph and recover artifacts from the debris field. Leave the tomb alone.
    Just My Opinion.....

    I suppose that the salvage people are hoping to steal the technology used to make the radio.

    from what Ive read & heard from older ham ops back then (still alive), it wasnt the radios fault

    they literally thought this ship was indestructible

    how do you remove what is probably a rusted, a decayed radio from a surrounding rusted debris field is illogical

    someone has more time & $$ on their hands than brains

    The S.P.A.R.C. Museum in Coquitlam, BC, Canada houses an excellent replica of the Wireless Office aboard Titanic's sister ship, Carpathia. The Marconi spark equipment in this room is in operable condition, and was even "fired up" during the Marconi commemoration some years ago.
