Interesting to know,
but I bought mine around 2000-2001, so I am surprised that I didn't get the latest version. hi.
Not sure whether I bought it from RSGB or DARC

I think what Jan-Martin has is the old LF Experimenters Sourcebook which
a comb bound compilation with a blue cover, of copies of articles
before 1995. In fact I think there were two editions of the "Sourcebook".
The book Dick is refering to is a later glossy bound printed book (pub
which is much more up to date with current projects., including Dave's
LF is moving so fast that we will be needing an update of that book soon

Yes, Alan is right. The original LF Experimenters Sourcebook was produced in
1996 in response to a requirement for information for the then new 73kHz
allocation in the UK. Information for this book came from such sources as
'LF Scene' (by ZL1CA & ZL2BBJ), a column from the New Zealand ham radio mag
'Break In' and 'The Lowdown', the magazine of the Longwave Club of America;
these guys were the only ones with experiance in LF at the time. It was
produced comb bound with a blue cover.
A second edition was produced in 1998. By this time we had some experiance
of our own to include and we also had the new 136kHz band. This publication
also was produced comb bound with a blue cover.
These publications were produced rather hurredly to meet a need and the
pages were photocopies of paste-ups. A higher quality publication was
required and this was met with 'The Low Frequency Experimenter's Handbook',
which was published in 2000.
I have included an Addendum and Erratta to this book on my website, shown
below. Work on this site is a bit behind shedule but it will be updated very
shortly. I have a mass of stuff that has been edited from hundreds of
e-mails on the LF reflector and this also will be included.
