May 2009 Key News


May 2009 - New Key shipmates added in May 2009 - Hill, Thomas 80 - 82; Cortell, James 75 - 78; Hunt, Brian 81 - 82; Phipps, Mitchell 81 - 82; Hall, David 71 - 74; Russell, Norman 89 - 93; Edmondson, Harry 88 - 90.  Check Crew List for details.

May 27, 2009 - I have added some more videos of the Key taken in 1987 and 1988.  Check them out by clicking on Videos link.

May 16, 2009 - Completed first attempt at digitizing the Key Video tape.  It did not come out very good.  I put a six minute sample of the Key leaving St Mary's in 1988 on the web site as a test.  The VHS tape I was given has half the sound as music and the other half as the actual sounds.   I will re-digitize the tape, this time with less compression which should improve the quality.  I'm on the slippery end of the learning curve here so bear with me.

May 15, 2009 - Received the equipment needed to convert the 100 minute Key VHS video tape to digital.  I will try to get things converted and online this weekend - stay tuned....

May 8, 2009 - I just received a 90 minute video tape of the Key blue patrols made in Aug 1987 and May of 1988 from shipmate Jeff Burke.  Included are refit, halfway night, emergency blow drill, cookout and swim call video.  I have just purchased the equipment I need to convert the tape to digital format so I can load it onto the web site.  It will not be delivered to me for about a week so keep an eye out for some new Key videos soon.
