Topics for the evening as follows:

  • Giles has an LG monitor what switches itself off when he keys up on 40m. Will a ferrite do the job?
  • Bits for baluns? Possibly Waters and Stanton? Project boxes from Maplin, and possibly the RSGB shop for toroids. See also the M0PZT Sorbie Balun
  • Happy broadcast memories – MCPS, splicing tape, a quarter-turn on vinyl and Bruton & Chappell library music discs
  • CD, vinyl and cassette quality. Vinyl is the winner. Ronco & K-tel anyone? Just remember to put your stylus under a pyramid
  • Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy  – Phil and I still have the off-air cassettes in our collections
