Maritime Radio Day MRD 2019

This year is the 10th anniversary of MRD details here
For those of you who cannot participate but would like to listen in on the action and hear some call signs of yester-year the spot frequencies are listed in my link above and all you need is a Web SDR.

This one in the Netherlands can be programmed to the MRD spot frequencies and is one of my favourites.

Both myself (G4HLN) and Tony (G3ZRJ) will be participating this year, with callsigns GB0GKB and GB0GKA being activated respectively. Hopefully radio conditions will be better than last year (couldn't have been worse to be fair). If all goes to plan there will be a couple more ex-GKA R/Os active over the MRD period.

I have participated in previous years, quite good fun. This year in April I will be at sea, ironically, but won't be /mm. I will try to listen if possible.

In the light of poor propagtion MRD organisers have chosen 20m as the best chance for DX and QRP stations to have a chance of being heard.
QRG 14052-14058 (Doddle for any R50M).

I hope to be on as well, signing GB0GLV - if I can do some antenna farming in the next couple of days....

Looking forward to working GKL again and hopefully I won't get a LONG qry

Unfortunately I don't have an R50M but it should still be a doddle on my Atalanta. I can use an ex RN transmitter. For ship and callsign I'll use Tynemouth/MVYY which was fitted with the R50M.
