Podcasts pirate radio amateur radio vintage valve radio

Podcasting began with the iPod, hence the name. But, unlike the iPod, podcasting has not only survived but it’s becoming increasingly popular. I intend to carry on with my videos, but I’ll also be creating podcasts. The audio podcasts will be for radio-related stories or anecdotes rather than technical instruction. The content will cover pirate radio, amateur radio, vintage valve radio and much more. Check out the links below…

Recollections of the Marine Trawler Band. To be released on Monday 22 July 2019.

Many years ago, I was a marine radio engineer working on the boats. Do you remember listening to coastguard stations and ships on the Trawler Band? Niton Radio, Humber Radio, Dover coastguard…  I’ll be recalling some of my visits to various boats to sort out their radio gear, some of which ended up in the sea! I’ll also be recalling the many hours I spent listening (and talking) on 2182kHz on the trawler band.

The early beginnings of an apprentice radio and television engineer. To be released on Monday 29 July 2019.

I was only fifteen when I started work. Fun in the radio and TV workshop, fun in the pubs and clubs… life couldn’t have been better! From my initiation in a cardboard box with a Dan heater to losing a customer’s television… being an apprentice was all go!

Recollections of GWM Radio Worthing. Part two to be released on Monday 5 August 2019.

GWM Radio was an army surplus shop in my home town of Worthing. I spent many happy hours there buying ex-army gear and parts for building transmitters. The shop owner, Les, was a real character. I’ll be chatting about him and various amusing incidents which occurred during my visits to the shop over several decades. The podcast was released on Monday 15th July 2019. I’m now working on part two.
