LOGS / NEWS - JUNE 2017
A site mainly dedicated to Mediumwave Dxing
It is not too often we advertise something on this dx site. In fact, the last item was a receiver I was selling.
But I would just like to give a plug if I may to a new radio book which has been published, which coincides with 50 years since the closedowns of 1967 of the offshore pirates, except Caroline. And of course to coincide with the granting on an AM licence to the afore mentioned Caroline.
A few samples of the book are inluded below, and links to the main supplier.There may be other outlets, and Stuart may well add some corrections.
The book itself is going to be a great read. I have not taken time to sit down and read it as yet, but rather jumping in at the odd page and having a sniffter, and had to end up pinching myself to put it down. So yes, another Offshore Radio book is now on the shelf that is well worth a read. Maybe a more in depth review will be on these pages soon.
An old late friend used to say that tidy operating conditions meant better working conditions... Or something like that... He used to say that regularly to me..!!
YOUNG RADIO HAM:
I was on the chat the other day to a young fella who's relatives have moved in a few doors away. The chap is studying for his RAE, and is very keen. Going to the local radio club, and picking up tips from older hams etc. Good to see a younger generation come into the hobby. It is a bit of an old fart's game these days...LOL !!
