This is a great Video...It shows some really neat
gear along with great baluns and antennas it is 9
min long and well worth watching... They have
Collins, Kenwood, Rca and a host of other stuff in
the video.. A bank of Collins 651S1 receivers...

For those of you with marine radio experience in
the south Pacific who
may've worked Melbourne Radio VIM (at any time
between 1912-2002) this
video clip might be nostalgic...


The BA link is probably the alarming spectacle of
me trying to reef out
the rfpa of the 2kW AWA 400-500 kHz tx at 5'16"
(white shirt, glasses)
to have a look at the 3 x 4CX1500 in parallel ( I
was more successful on
a later visit when I had the sea-going beard see

The Mayday relay calls at the beginning are real -
recorded during a
particularly nasty Sydney-Hobart yacht race in
January 1998.
