I suspect that all who particpated in the original networking of ideas and
thoughts to progress and co-ordinate LF experimentation will endorse Peter's
comments.  Peter was generous enough to host the RSGB LF Group, as the
informal networking group was called, on  We owe him a dept
of gratitude.

I personally don't derive any pleasure in seeing the level of intolerance on
this reflector.  Some of the group don't get free download, like myself at
the moment, so it's an additional annoyance to have to pay to read the
exchanges.  If the usage of the list doesn't improve I may be forced to ask
for a volunteer to act as moderator, or even ask Peter to close it.  That
would be a pity.

Can we please get back to the hobby and accept that there is wide scope for
experimentation, operating, re-learning and some fun!

Why so intolerant? The Decca experimentors are radio amateurs, taking
advantage of the unique availability of some ex-commercial
equipment to push
further the boundaries in this area. Come on, there's room for all here?
Nobody says you have to join in if you don't want to.

If no radio amateur had ever used any ex-commercial equipment the hobby
would be somewhat poorer, I think.

Personally I take my hat off to the skill and knowledge of the likes of
G4JNT - again, the envelope is being pushed in another fascinating
direction. And again, if *you* don't want to do it, be our guest
and don't.
There's room for all.
