Finbar says "The original recording was made at Aberdeen Technical College, using a Marconi Marine "Atlanta" receiver and a 30 foot whip antenna, in 1981. The idea of the recording was to give the prospective new Marine Radio Officers training with the "real" sound of 500 khz. Unfortunetly the recording quality is poor. It was recorded during daylight hours. It was noticed that
a weak signal from AngleseyRadio/GLV was present, calling a ship. Using Cool Edit Pro, the signal was filtered and boosted, about 9db. Considering the signal from GLV was coming across a bit of Wales, the north of England and across Scotland to a 30 foot bit of wire, no wonder the signal was weak."
