SS Alaunia Radio Room

SS Alaunia Radio Room

Radio room on Cunard's SS Alaunia, 1965. Standard Marconi fit-out. I've forgotten the callsign after all these years.

How many times have I used that call-sign! My little book records that Alunia's call-sign was GFQU.

Hi Doug,

Yup, Electra?mercury and Oceanspan 7. The sister ship, Andania, had an Atalanta. All pretty reliable gear.

The Marconi Radiolocator MkIV radars were another story altogether. I don't remember now whether it was the Alaunia or Andania where the radar caught fire as we were sailing up the Thames on the way home! Not a lot I could do to fix that mess!

All the best,

John
