Are these two TX from the same coast station or different?

Hi Vernon,

A strange one, which frequency was it on?

Vern,

I was also monitoring 8Mhz at that time. I use Multipsk V4.25

Though with our separation/time difference I imagine reception conditions would not match.
My log at that time shows as below. So no good decodes of South Africa here. I'll keep an eye open for a 'good copy' of 00601060
Interestingly the ship calling was a South African registered one.

Peter,
It was on 8414.5mhz and band conditions were so so.
Software was Multipsk reg'd and I think the latest update.
I have seen the ( St. ) show up a couple of times in the past but have always had a check sum error and attributed it to that.
I think there has to be a software decoding issue as this one was part of 5 or 6 good decodes from Capetown...not sure though :-)

Hi Vern,

006010060 is new to me. It doesn't seem to be a GMDSS Coast Station, it's not listed anywhere I can find in the GMDSS Masterplan,

Google led me here:

http://aprs.fi/info/i/006010060

which led me here:

http://www.imtechjhb.co.za/?index

Imtech Marine, Port Elizabeth. Further digging might find details of their HF DSC installation?

WIll look later.

Nice catch! Nothing in my log for that time on 8MHz.

Cheers,

John

some more info

The vessel being called 601165200) is the Marie Jose, recently left Port Elizabeth, which ties with the location of Imtech Marine.

Hi John and Vern,

Great work on that digging John, also looks like a nice new catch from South Africa  for you Vern.
That's one to keep a sharp lookout for.

Looking at the Imtech website they offer many specialist eletronic solutions amongst other things and have several South African locations plus also in many other countries world-wide.
More digging there.

Regards,

Peter
