Map and Western Ferries

Hello Duncs,

Ok on you being on relief duty on the ferries. Those transmitters you copied from Malin Head, still live on, by way of parts from the scrapped rigs. They were built like tanks, the Pi Tank coil arrangement used a bunch of encapsulated ferrite rods for fine tuning, wonderful for my experiments on both 136 khz and 472 khz, mainly running WSPR transmissions. I did build a Valve Linear Amp from more parts but have retired that set up and now concentrate on FET technology for Power amps. Like I expect many other marine radio rigs, both at sea and ashore, most "stuff" was tipped in a skip.

There was NO Way I was going to allow that and took what I could manage to haul home and fill the shed at the back of the house. Management were just glad to get rid of it.

Sad to say I never did manage to get hold of an Oceanspan transmitter. Shame.

Thanks for stirring the memories, yes I think you are correct with GYAE callsign, sounds right.

Kind regards
