Default HF-GCS having fun with the date, Feb 14, 2018

The HF-GCS network is not really something I pay a lot of attention to. After a few EAMs and Skykings it can get pretty boring waiting for the odd phone patch. However, I do occasionally tune to it just for grins, and I often end up recording messages on HF-GCS in the process of grabbing spectrum for other purposes.

Such was the case with the first Skyking of the day at 0453 UTC on Feb 14, 2018.

Now you don't think that code word was an accident, do you?

for about the last year, i've been hearing SKYKING messages using the names of rock bands (i.e. boston, zeppelin. skynard, pink floyd, yardbirds, etc...) as the codeword. interesting.
