HISTORY OF PORTISHEAD RADIO

HERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY AND NOSTALGIA
FOR MAINLY THE SPARKIE FRATERNITY BUT I AM SURE MOST SEAFARERS WILL HAVE HEARD THIS NAME OF PORTISHEAD RADIO.
THE WORLD FAMOUS UK HF RADIO STATION, NOW CLOSED DOWN.

There used to be an establishment just off the A30 road on Bodmin Moor, in Cornwall, with a sign saying it was a BT (British Telecom) Marine Radio Station. In my years at sea I never heard it mentioned. Since the A30 has been re-routed in this area it is no longer visible. Would this have been part of the Portishead set-up?

Noddy,

It was part of the BT but it had nothing to do with GKA. I think or I am sure it had a more military use.
