What about Magic? Anyone using that??

Or, how about we use the D'Agapeyeff cipher? That'll confuse them


p.s. to mods - we far enough yet OT?

Magic was the Ultra of the Pacific War. We could use Red for Assemby

So to recap: -

Circuit = M3 Enigma
Stewards = Lorenz
Pits/S'line = Fish
Paddock = Brown
Assembly = [Japanese] Red

Just like a normal meeting then, no-one will have a clue what is going on

You could try semaphore, but it might clash with the flag signals?

Scanners

Hi all

I am sorry in advance if this has already been covered in an earlier post

My sister has just started marshaling. I would like to buy her a scanner for Christmas so she can listen to the marshals radio and maybe the commentaries. Someone advised that circuits are now starting to go digital.

Any advice on scanners or what other marshals use would be greatly appreciated

Yes, this subject has been discussed at various times. Just do a search for 'scanners' in this Forum.

The 'AR108' is probably the most popular scanner in use, easy to find second hand on ebay and is reasonably priced. Maplin sometimes stock it. It's small, easy to use but is analogue so if (eventually) circuits move to all digital transmissions (e.g.: Goodwood) it won't be of much use.

Which circuit(s) is your sister marshalling at? As you say, some now use digital transmissions, so a scanner is no use at them.

If your sister has only recently started then I would suggest she focused on what is happening near her when marshalling rather than listening to a scanner.
