Somethings you never forget- the company call sign on a deepsea night watch. Any other tankermen from the 1970's out there?

Welcome to SN and I hope you'll enjoy the voyage!
There are indeed many Tankermen as well as all sorts of others on SN, so feel free to look around!

Hello Anne,
How many times have I sent 'GTZX' over the airwaves in the hope of getting a reply whilst 'deepsea'?
With 135 ships, when I first joined, the chances of a reply were good. As the fleet shrank so did the the replies.
I was hoping to stir some memories by using it again

I agree with Graham hardly a day would go by in the mid 70s when you couldn't reach another BP ship on VHF, let alone on 500kHz. By 1986 I'd all but given up sending out GTZX, it was as if I was on the last remaining vessel! lol

As I remember it in the early 1970's the only place I couldn't get a response to a GTZX call was for about a week midway on the Gulf to Kwinana, W Australia run.
