En riktig Sailor

Livlig aktivitet råder stundom på nya 40 metersbandet. Vid midnatt dök plötsligt SH8IP/MM upp på 7.140 kHz från sin ankarplats på redden utanför Amsterdam. Det är Janne / SA0AQN som är Navigation Officer ombord tankfartyget Bro Atland. Utsökt modulation från proffsriggen Sailor CU5100 med en 9 m vertikal 22 m över havet.

De gamla nödfrekvenserna 500 och 2182 kHz är numera slopade och ersätta av sex frekvenser inom 2 - 16 MHz som radion ständigt scannar så att ett nödanrop alltid ska gå fram oavsett konditioner. Sailor är utrustad med en telefonlur men det låter mera BBC än kolkorn.
