Thanks Neville. Thought that too but then thought he'd be sending to Ilfracombe but then thought, hello 1994, maybe GIL was a goner. No wonder it was quiet!

The 1963 list shows GBLR as ATHELDUKE. So looks like calls signs were re-issued.

Enjoy.

Finbar EJM retired EI0CF
I was on watch in 88 when the Piper Alpha went up, there was 3 of us handling that case and there is only 2 of us left. I went back to sea with Cunard until I retired in 2000.

I remember when I first got an ICOM PCR1000 receiver well over 10 years ago and went looking for what GKA frequencies I could remember, which were (I think) 8546/12822/17908 KHz (please correct if I'm wrong.)

I couldn't understand why there was no signal ! Which shows how out of touch I was with marine comms !!

The station was long gone by then.

Think the UK stations lasted a bit longer than that, Troppo. Some anyway.

I often pass the old Brisbane Radio (VIB) and it is now something to do with Telstra. The large marble bust of Marconi which stood outside has vanished. Wonder who scored that?

VIB is still used for aircraft HF comms - Virgin and Deathstar.

Maybe they've put Marconi on the roof and we can't see it from the road anymore.

PS Just occurred to me, why do planes need HF comms in this day and age?

JT,

Back when they first installed Sat on aircraft there were occasions when the
a/c changed direction they would loose the sat signals. It required more aerials around the hull to eliminate that problem. However there are still areas were
the good old HF is king. Arctic regions used to be a problem and also I would imagine that the dark continent has enough financial problems without having to install all the equipment. I am sure that those who are more up to date than me will give you a better answer. AC do have on board systems - used to be called ACARS - which gave continuous readouts of on board systems, so their ops could monitor everything. Nothing like a good bit of paper and HF comms though.

Quote from the WWW -ACARS an acronym for aircraft communications addressing and reporting system) is a digital datalink system for transmission of short messages between aircraft and ground stations via airband radio or satellite. The protocol was designed by ARINC and deployed in 1978, using the Telex format.

That was the terminology in the past for AFRICA. Supposedly a humourous comment not for the PC brigade to get hot under the collar.

Neville,

Thanks for your honesty (unlike your oppo who seems to think it is Antarctica). It was indeed terminology in the past when ironically, we knew a great deal about that Continent.

I just wonder if your comment is consistent with a position as 'Super Moderator', whatever that is? Just a thought and thanks for the put down. It must be hard for you living in the 21st Century but I'm happy to help you if you want.

73s,

Barry

500 khz recordings World Map of Coast Radio Stations

Hello Peter,

Glad you had a chance to check my A9M recordings, there are many more amongst my postings.

As far as I remember, I have the CD from Sylvester, but I will check and make sure I have it. I will also check the Link you have given.

I also given, by another German Radio Officer, a World Map of Coast Radio stations, produced, I believe, as a training aid for those studying for their Marine Radio Officer exams. It is very comprehensive, listing the many many large and tiny coast radio stations. The map is about 1.5 metres square, so not easy to copy,
etc etc.

Kind regards
