What call sign are you using for this event? Is it a club call?
CONGRATS ON BEING THE PROUD OWNER OF A RAL-8 WITH THE PS......... BRAVO.........
I WAS STATIONED ON THE USS TIGRONE - SS-419 OUT OF GROTON, CT.
WHEN I FIRST WENT ON THE TIGRONE WE HAD THE RADIO ROOM THAT WAS VERY
SIMILAR TO THE SHACK SHOWN ON THE USS SILVERSIDES IN THE VIDEO ABOVE.
THEN IN THE FIRST PART OF 1963 WE WENT INTO THE SHIPYARD DOWN IN PHILLY
FOR AN ENTIRE OVERHAUL OF THE TIGRONE.
UNCLE SAM WAS VERY GENEROUS TO US AND GAVE US THE LATEST AND GREATEST
COMMUNICATIONS GEAR OF THAT TIME.
HE GAVE US A COLLINS URC-32 AND A COUPLE OF R39OA RXs. WE WERE GIVEN THE
SRR-11A VLF RX TO COPY THE FOX BROADCAST FROM NAA UP IN CUTLER, MAINE.
MY QRZ PAGE HAS ADDITIONAL INFO ON THE TIGRONE.
JON TAKE GOOD CARE OF URSELF AND I WISH U SMOOTH SAILING AND
73 - K1LKP
sorry for the late reply.... but I was tied up on the radio!
The call sign is K4DSR, and they are calling CQ mentioning the USS Alabama. They'll be on again tomorrow (Sunday)
they were on 40 and 20m today, but not on any fixed frequency. I'd expect the same for tomorrow.... so you'll have to listen out for them.
Thanks Carmen, as My rig is an RAL-8, I assumed it was produced
later than the RAL-7 series?
CHECK OUT THESE SITES FOR SOME ADDITIONAL INFO ON THE RAL SERIES OF RX.
73- TAKE GUD CARE OF THAT OLE RAL-8
Great Work Guys!
