MV Encounter Bay, GYRW.
The end of an era. Morse was on its way out, although still in use, SITOR telex and eventually Satcom were taking over.
See the morse key tucked away between the main receiver (Redifon R5000) and the main transmitter. The telex keyboard is just visible
to the right of the main transmitter.
I think that this was to be my last trip at sea, early 1991.
