Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I live quite a distance from the GMT site So.....

    Has anyone got the right time :lol: :lol:
  2. Yes its spring time......cuckoo......cuckoo......cuckoo......cuckoo......cuckoo 8O :D :D
  3. At the third stroke it will be... :lol:
  4. TOT TIME :D :D :wink:
  5. (best with a strong kaffir accent)

    "It is 1200 Greenwich; meantime, here is the News".

  6. Kaffir? or did you mean Yarpie? 8O :?:
  7. True SSN Dit, circa 1970.

    Pay attention at the back, ancient history/old technology, but a True Greenwich Mean Time Dit.

    To minimise vunerable time spent at the roof, W/T transmissions were then Broadcast on VLF in high speed Encrypted Morse at scheduled times, immediately preceeded by the GMT time signal Pips.

    On receipt, this signal traffic was recorded on reel to reel tape recorders then played back at slow speed whilst deep again when the sparkers then de-crypted the result on their ancient, enigma-style KL-7 Machines. (Forked Stick Mark Two)

    So - We came up to peri depth at W/T Schedule time, had quick all round look, but no Signal traffic for us so we went back deep to continue fast passage routine.

    Newby Nav pops into W/T shack, knowing there was no traffic but needed his chrono checked at such times.

    Sez the newby Nav - Did you get the Time Pips OK?

    Sez PoTel (Innocently) - Oh yes sir, we have recorded it especially for you.

    Exit puzzled Newby Nav and all collapsed in a crumpled heap.....

  8. We live 70 degrees north and 23 degrees east,in other words 650 kms north of the arctic circle,beat that if you can, :boogie:
  9. Does the Greenwich(look I spelt it right I wanna prize) line run into Euston, or is it on the south side, and what "time" are the trains.
    Do I have to wait an extra hour during the summer time? 8O :D
