Probably. The thing about working coast stations all over the world was that they were all completely different.Vibroplex iambic keyer?
Portishead/GKA was the biz. The week before Xmas their traffic lists were continuous. If you were lucky you got QRY 35
Colombo/4PB had a dodgy PSU in their main transmitter which made it warble.
Odessa/UDE (Soviet Ukraine) thought that 65wpm was reasonable.
Slidell/WNU was far and away the slickest cost station in the US. They put the giants like Ammagansett/WSL and SanFrancisco/KPH to shame.
Lots of nostalgia herefor us old farts ...
