When the big BANG comes you will regret not having learned about
VALVES/TUBES and how to use them.
These have a good chance of survival when all the chips have FRIED and being
able to use a morse key a bonus.

Having just joined Amsat (because I felt I 'ought' to) I'm less than
impressed with a) Oscar News which has had no technical content in the
two issues so far received, and b) The Amsat -UK web site. In spite
of supposed to being able to log in I can't after several requests.
Seems there is nothing there anyway
So all in all, don't look to much from the UK Am satellite scene.
2) Constructional articles
Radcom is always looking out for things. My new column can continue
based on years of my own-experimentation and building in quintillions
of different subject areas from DC to pink light, digits and analogue,
but I would like input from others. Anything that isn't yet another
wire antenna or a new H-Mode mixer, and certainly no valves would be
welcome; mid-range to upper end technology is preferred using
modern(ish, in amateur terms) devices. Don't want to cover simple
basics, that is best left to Eamon and Ian in their columns.
