With the demise of the United Kingdom's professional Coast Radio Station service, this site becomes dedicated to the memory of the service.   It is put together by someone who was a manager in the UK service and one of that country's maritime Radio Surveyors.   It consists of information and links from many sources, it's still being added to  - and there's room for much much more.   If you'd like to provide additional information for the site, or a link to a site you have created or identified, please e-mail your information.
