    Gotcha!
    I know it as 'Hareesa' in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. Or 'Revani' in Turkey๐Ÿ‘
    The Rose Water points to the Turkish variant. Delicious๐Ÿ˜›, but I always feel a drive to clean my teeth after eating it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    You were right about the 'A' & 'E' anyway, depending on variant ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I think we still have a 'Non Hobby Chit Chat' section somewhere on the Forum page. I'll check.
    Cheers, and Guten Appetit! Doug
    PS Yes the section is still there. Now called simply Non-Hobby Chat.

    Not sure of the exact recipe Doug, saw it on TV on some travel program and didn't get time to write it down. It has semolina, sugar, flour, coconut and rose water and sugar syrup as a finishing 'sauce'. It's made into a dough after simmering the semolina, mixing a truckload of sugar, adding coconut, flour, putting in a shallow tray and baking at around 150c for about 40 mins. After its done add another truckload of sugar to water, simmer till dissolved, add rose water and pour all over cake/slab. I've tried small quantities and although as previously described still tastes quite reasonable.
    Better call it 'ships ballast cake' so we are not accused of misusing the site. As an international traveler you might recognize it being a common Arab sweet. Will try and hunt out the name (think it had an A and E init) Here endeth the cooking lesson.
    Just found it! called Basboosa

    "It's thick, pliable, sticky and heavy, ..."
    And probably extremely sweet as well ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜
    Sounds like a typical 'sweetmeat' to be found all over the Arab world and Turkey etc.
    Can you send me the recipe please?

    Or fishing up the sub if it fails to blow ballast Doug, and talking of ballast, I've just had a crack at making a middle eastern coconut and semolina cake. It's thick, pliable, sticky and heavy,- just right for molding into the bottom of your sub, or for any thing requiring moldable ballast.

    Hi JB,
    Comes from 30 odd years of designing COMMS systems for naval vessels, including submarines.
    Did several surveys of submarines for refit designs.
    At 6'2" I'm not built for working on subs, kept bangin' me 'ead! ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿค•

    Martin,
    whales have the advantage that they are transmitting directly into water, where sound travels about 4 times faster than in air at sea level. And they can do this mechanically, process still not fully understood, at very low frequencies from around 2Hz to 100Hz mostly. Hence the long ranges achieved.
    Up to maybe 24kHz for short range echolocation - nosh hunting!๐Ÿ˜œ
    Interestingly, spectrum analysis of Humpback whale sounds shows an FM type structure with pulsed modulation. Just like our FM RC transmitters! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    We have to transmit first through the air, for several thousand kilometres in some cases, and then have enough energy left to penetrate down a hundred metres or so.
    We have to do this electrically, hence long antennas. Wavelength = Speed of light / frequency in Hertz! Do the math - it's a long chunka wire!๐Ÿ˜ฎ Halfwave at 8kHz ~18.75km.
    Happy whale listening folks,๐Ÿ˜Ž
    PS; JB, you can always use the antenna for a spot of fly fishing - while waiting for your sub to come up again!๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Very interesting thanks Doug, you obviously know your stuff, - one of those things I've always wanted to know but was afraid to ask, HyHy At least 40 still has a use here and there, but I doubt whether I'll be building any subs in the near future to suit my old TXs, although I did contemplate it a few years ago. Also those dammed aerials are a pain! Those Graupner tray sets are ridiculous! Maybe I can get my old Yaesu Frog 7 out and listen for subs?
