The author never got paid, so I'd rather not enrich the distributor.

Too late now. It's been paid for and is in the post to me

I worked at GKR AND GKA from 1953 till 1956 and have recorded what it was like to work at these stations during that period in my Kindle book, LAST VOYAGE AND BEYOND, published by my daughter, Moira.

LAST VOYAGE = on the Blue Funnel ship, Deucalion, and BEYOND = the coast stations.

The only name I recognize in these postings is Norman Murray who was at Wick with me.

Regards

Ian

I saw/heard a poor recording of the QRT years ago. Farewells from as far away as Canada (VCM?). I recall the sending from GND sounded somewhat influenced by Whiskey with a final "Slange!" Well worth getting.

Is there any video/audio of the shutdown broadcast by Portishead anywhere on the 'net?

Apologies GND/GCC whose sending was excellent, it was GKR sounded a bit Hogmanayish to me and I think slainte is pronounced slange. Yes well deserved indeed. By the way I go on 472.5 CW now and then with my T1154.
