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, and it is the reason why I hold the amateur radio call sign G4PYR.


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 Lots of radio amateurs over the years have developed an interest in the Maritime & Coastal Radio Service.
Many of the Medium Frequency Maritime Coastal Radio stations around the world have closed down, with many countries such as the United Kingdom
having no commercial Coastal Radio stations handling traffic still operational.
