The Signalman

I found an old rusty Signalman train badge and thought it would be perfect to fix to my ham radio receiver and Morse decoder. I always like to name my projects and Signalman is perfect.

I burnt my finger whilst cutting the clasp off the back but it covers a nasty scratch on the box (the dangers of taking projects out and about I guess) and that is how the Signalman got its name.

Still loving the handset despite some funny looks when I’m out with it. Today whilst out walking I was able to pick up a couple of old gentlemen talking about building their own radios. I love listening in to snapshots of people’s lives like this. It’s like I’m fishing for good conversations with the Signalman being my net.
