Hello

Hi Ė My name is Charlie Gregory, ex RO,
plus Wick Radio and North Foreland Radio;
then 20 years based in the Cardiff Marine Office.
I write a blog at www.poet-on-a-hill.blogspot.com
Thatís where I advertise my three books, which all have
radio officers as the main characters.
Perhaps of interest to the ROs among us is the
fact that I have just posted a video on Youtube,
which is (I hope) an introduction to the role
Morse code played as an aid to the Safety of Life at Sea.
If you are interested, go to Givvup (thatís the name of my site) on
Youtube and play Morse Code Over the Ocean.
Cheers!

Hi Minty
No, sorry. The only time I spent with Old Mar Coni was on the Hull trawlers in the fifties. God... I'm an Old Git. But there we go. Cheers Charlie

Dear Charlie,

listened to your morse video, much enjoyed. wkr and gnf i think were call signs of your coast stations. one thing i would dearly love to hear again would be a recording of 500 khz in the 70s or 80s just to hear the general traffic, does such a thing exist?

Many thanks.

Hi Hugh.
If you put www.radiomarine.org into Google. Then click on "Listen and travelback in time..." You get a good selection there.
Yep. Wick was GKR and N. Foreland GNF.
