Greetings from an old Lady in deepest West Cork. [the vessel I mean|], MV Coos Bay /EINX, sends a hello. Got my copy of ‘THE SILENCE’ and am savouring it. Fantastic job done and they can’t totally forget us all now. One little crib, there seems to be a lack of “ship to ship” lateral contact between members of the Cloth and thats a pity as today we all have enough electronics on hand to fill the Prom deck of RMS Queen Mary!. So here I sit apparently the sole surviving Sparkie in Southern Ireland wondering if theres any one into a bit of communication?
The scene here is a now laid up schooner fitted with Marconi gear, a virtual museum, slowly attempting to restore it to er, futile operation. GLD, where art thou now?. So a bit of advice OM would not come amiss. Like the wee Salvor2 TX is reddening its 807″s and won’t load up. No drive?. Anyone know of a supplier of Octal KTW63’s for my senile Ellectra?. Stuff like that. I really don’t want to regress to a Quenched Arc Spark yoke when the micro chips all die! [Only joking].
And, does anyone know about antennas?. Earthing plates on wooden vessels?. Come on, talk to me Guys and Gals. 73’s, BGraham.
