Remember when Argentina had the official exchange rate, the unofficial exchange rate and the official unofficial exchange rate ... or somat like that. One of the operators at LPD explained it all to me and was very keen to become my personal exchange executive. Unfortunately, I don't think I had enough cash to hold his interest.

Anyone any idea of JNA, presumably Japanese. Was sorting out some old cassette tapes and found CW call giving Navarea missile testing near Marshall Islands followed byTony Blackburns top of the pops. Don’t ask !! Seems to be around 1982. In which case I was on STUK “Siam”

R651400 thanks for your prompt reply. Thought it was a Government station but just couldn’t remember hearing it!!

STUK is short for Shell Tankers UK. “Siam” was ex Shell tanker “Dorcasia” sold to Thailand but managed by STUK with several Thai cadets and officers under training.

JNA is/was Tokyo Hoan, Japanese Coast Guard. (I found a list).

Manchester.. All my voyages on the Japanese coast never once heard JNA.

STUK... Had a funny feeling it wasn't a Sudanese call sign!

Nauru VKT became C21(something, cant remember.
The m.v. Eigamoiya was C2EM, which was one of the first letter followed by a numeral c/s in Australian waters and created quite a stir!
Ah, just remembered, C21 was Amateur prefix) and Nauru was C2N.

coast stations initial letters.

Memory being what it is, I remember in the list of coast stations during the Fifties a station (name ?) located in the Lebanon whose callsign was quote AD2AAD unquote. Never heard it on 500 nor did it respond to any calls on 500.

coast station letters

I did say my memory wasn't the best. So, re my earlier message I now recall that coast station should have read : OD2AAD. Apologies for that lapse.
