The "SOS" signal was established as an international distress signal by an agreement made between the British Marconi Society and the German Telefunk Organization at the Berlin radio conference, 3 October 1906. This signal was formally introduced on 1 July 1908. "SOS" did not stand for any three words, but was chosen because it's signal was so simple that anyone could transmit it.
The first time the SOS signal was used in an emergency was on 10 October 1909, When the Cunard Liner SS SLAVONIA was wrecked off the Azores. Two steamers received her signals and went to the rescue. This was nearly three years before the TITANIC made her famous signal.
