Not strictly Ham radio related but anyone wants to look at BBC Radio player R4 0723 ish today a facinating story on how its possible and easy to hack into broadcast radio station.Radio Mansfield 103 is under investigation after its audience lost its no doubt boring local broadcast to an infamouse dirty ditty by Ivov Biggun!
Interesting meeting last night a number of issues I will raise with committee
For those that are considering the Advanced exam i would recommend the Bath Based Advanced Distance Learning (BBADL) course. 20 weeks training with about 2 hrs a week required. There is a test each week to keep the pressure on. Cost is only £30 which is refunded if you are on track after 12 weeks.
May i also add my thanks to Duncan, John & Tony for giving up to allow Hayden and myself to take the online Advanced exam today.
Thanks to Duncan, John and Tony for giving up a sunny Saturday to facilitate the Advanced exam today ( and on-line as well !!!) much appreciated and we both passed so worthwhile. many thanks Hayden 2E0HMG
