Radio Braemar

As an Amateur Radio operator my husband requested & was granted permission to operate aboard during our cruise. These photos show the 'set-up' & the aerial looped over the balcony [it dropped onto the lifeboat below & at one point it was cut, presumably but a tidy crew member thinking it was a stray piece of wire hanging loose :0) ] I gather operation was very successful with many contacts.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, MSC & HAL, in our experience, are quite happy for RAs to operate, however Cunard consider it against their company policy to permit, for some reason they are unable to explain [despite initially being given the OK].
