500 Kc/s

Now that 500 Kc/s is becoming closer to an international amateur heritage frequency some nostalgic and interesting recordings coming out of the woodwork.
Spot the "deliberate" mistake on PCH's final msg...

Malcolm,

Well spotted Neville.
No mistaking the recording is authentic so that makes (at least) two transcription errors.
With your background it should be dead easy!!

Ahhh, sorry to rain on your parade, but 5 ton won't be an amateur heritage freq.

It (495-505) will be used for a new high(er) speed NAVTEX service by IMO.

I'm quietly confident that I could read it but all I get is an "error message".

Dit dah Dit dah Dit.

IMO has backed a proposal by the US (which is, in itself, an enhancement of an original French proposal) for a high speed QPSK-based data service using 495-505 kHz.

This will be further discussed at the forthcoming ITU SG5 meeting in Geneva in early November.

From there, it will almost certainly go to the next World Radio Conference as a concrete proposal.

As the IMO have backed it, there is a very good chance that Administrations will get behind it. So, it will, in all probability, get up.

There are a number of proposals to give amateurs a slot somewhere around 500 - it will probably be around 505-515 - between the new high speed NAVTEX service and the existing 518 NAVTEX channel.

At the moment, 500 has had its exclusive maritime status removed - there is a very good chance that this will be reinstated at the next WRC.

Malcolm,

OK I will come quietly - hope the dungeons will not be too cold and wet. I am afraid I cannot see what it is you are referring to. Read it over and over but nothing.

D'accord Neville.
Looking at the transcription and listening to the replies to PCH I heard GKR but not a peep from GND.
I agree that pleasantries such as bibi and cu were totally unheard in the days of "coast station is always the control station."
Lamentably this even permeated thru to some of the martinet RO1's I came across in my time.

Malcolm,

Ah! I had not listen and read the msg together. Will have another listen.

Yes definitely no GCC - only GKR. Also PCH did say BiBi - never heard that before.

Neville.... GCC (with probably the best 500 kc/s note ever) is there as is DAN, GLD and GKR which is mistakenly down as in the transcription as GND.
There are others, one obviously a coast station and my bet GKZ who acknowledged without call sign.

Almost worth starting another thread.
Did you ever hear a spark/class B emission, if so when?
I certainly remember my last time before class B emissions were discontinued excepting emergency tfc only.

Can someone please explain what I'm doing wrong? I click on "LaatsteQTC_PCH.mp3" and all I get is an error message. The other ones (eg PCH on 4 mhz, work OK).
