this post to switch back in 1986 when in Merchant Marine all had a true and deep sense, in the Deck dept. in the Engine dept. and in the Radio Room.
I propose you the following video recorded on board F/B Leinster, starting at minute 4.1 the camera went into radio room where the R/O was on watch between his Marconi Marine gears.
I suggest to watch the entire movie. M/V Leinster was employed for passages between Liverpool and Dublin and from Dublin to Holyhead.
