This web site is dedicated to the memory of Ralph Blackburn G3PYR, who not only taught me CW but also instilled in me a love of Top Band operating, for that I will always be grateful.

With the sharing of the 160m (1810-2000 kHz)  & 80m (3500-3800 kHz) bands between stations in the Coastal Radio Service and the Amateur Radio Service many radio amateurs have over the years developed an interest in Maritime Radio.

Many of the Medium Frequency Coastal Radio stations around the world have closed, with some countries like the United Kingdom having no commercial Coastal Radio stations still operational.

I have no connection with the Coastal Radio Service, but merely an interest gained from 39 years as an SWL & Radio Amateur with a love of Top Band operating.
