Hello people!

Does anybody know the name of the SS Frankfurt's unlucky wireless operator whom Phillips had called a "fool" in their famous radiotelegraphic dialogue?

'You fool keep out and Stbi'... etc.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Hi Eugene! Tim Maltin's book "101 Things You Thought You Knew About the Titanic" gives the name of the Frankfurt's operator as W. Zippel. Maltin credits an article in The Titanic Commutator by researcher George Behe for this information. Hope that helps!
