I'm turning in now folks, G'Night All.
This one shouldn't be too hard, we are still north of the tyne.

Spot on, Sir, first try. Has your compass gone awry?
Well done.

It's a pity I went to bed early, I would have recognised Cullercoats Radio in the background callsign GCC click here the ship to shore radio station. I used to regularly hear them hear in London. All sadly gone now. Anyone interested in Cullercoats Radio click here

North of the Tyne did not really leave that many.
Without that little hint I would never had a clue.
Mind you his last clue was as usful as a wet piece of string.
Well to me anyhow.

Some nice photo's on there as well.
Did you just have a Receiver or a Transiever.
Still have a Transiever here but never use it.
use it for mainly CB transmissions.
Saying that it is very seldom switched on.
never ever got round to getting an Amateur licence.
Used to listen a lot but there are some very boring people out there so gradually stopped that as well.

Well Done. The Bay and Wireless Station, Cullercoats.

I have a transiever, here is a picture of my station

I mainly use CW (Morse) although you can see a microphone in the top picture. In the top picture, on the left in the rack is the high power amplifier, above that sitting on top of the rack you can see the antenna matching unit. The bottom picture is the HF transiever at the bottom, just to the right is the electronic Morse keyer, above that on the left is the monitor scope and just to the right is a VHF transiever with a graphic equaliser sitting on top on it, now redundant as the transiever has its own equaliser, I built the equaliser for a previous transiever that didn't have one.

Cullercoats Radio used to operate on 1838KHz which was in the shared 160 metre band, during the evening they used to put a colossal signal into the south of the UK, I think we were in the right skip distance from them, they were stronger than North Forland radio who were far closer at the mouth of the Thames.
