I only use this mostly for monitoring the UHF pager signal (along with the pager itself) as there are two others on the same frequency, but the set will eventually be used as a backup comms system for work in case of a Internet and/or mobile network failure (which is not that uncommon!)
it has the coiled acoustic earpiece bit as well (any tips on…[Read more]
that would make sense for infant/junior school level – at my junior school there was a single BBC micro that only used cassette tapes
my high school was well equipped ; it had 12 BBC micros + 4 master 128s and Econet server + hard drive; I will get round eventually to writing the whole saga about the RAT but it will be long and I’ve got to…[Read more]
the acorn electron was a cut down cheaper version of the 6502 based BBC (I had one at home)|. your age group is more likely to have used the A3000 at high school which is an ARM based machine but had many similarities to the BBC and could run BBC BASIC on RISCOS.
his is the RTL-SDR in action (monitoring a cheap Chinese mini transmitter of the sort sold in supermarkets for listening to MP3 players in older cars that only have VHF/FM receivers). These transmitters are always slightly off frequency – apparently because a cheaper quartz (also widely used in other computer equipment) can be used in the PLL…[Read more]
Soundcloud changed around their external links policy. Probably to get people to look at ads or something silly.
This time round I hadn’t had time to fix the “wrong” link although Waldo isn’t doing anything wrong (which I explained in the reply)
Groetjes massie; ik heb de “foute” link bewerkte (het was geen foutje dat jouw heeft gedaan, maar het gevolg van diverse acties bij Soundcloud.)
Helaas heeft soundcloud haar beleid over externe links naar andere sites te plaatsen toch veranderd.
Ik weet niet waarom (misschien SC krijgt wat klagen over het auteursrecht?)
dus werkt de tag niet…[Read more]

Last week I had to take a prescription to a doctors surgery 420m away from my house and uphill. Out of curiosity, I put the transmitter high up in a corner of my room (the same upstairs room I was listening to NL radio today).

its worth doing your research first; a few years ago I had to talk Giantmidget out of getting a tattoo of a “Japanese tiger”. There is no such creature, as it would involve the cat swmming across the South China sea; tigers can swim but like all cats they abhor cold water (and the sea gets colder as you approach Japan/Korea).
