Now what the **** are you talking about. You appear to have developed a code all of your own.
Some here may remember that pre- BATCO, there was MAPCO and SLIDEX. This doubled the possibilities that you didn't have a ******* clue what you were doing.
The slidex cursers burnt well, stunk the cv out though.
Yes it's called 'TWATCO'
TA Sigs in the 80's and BATCO was just a chuffin hassle. We used plain language whenever possible and gave Grobendonk the finger with clansman on full power! Trouble was we got a load of radio hams doing morse and interfereing. I often wonder if the morse buggered up our sigs being picked up by Grobendonk?
We're still taught it as fall-back for when secure Bowman goes tits up. I'm surprised, therefore, that we don't use it more.
Probably like chunkie says it is hassle.but it's good to have a secure back up.
And super griddle...
