posted May 10, 2019, 4:54 AM by acsmith54   [ updated May 10, 2019, 5:09 AM by Bob Bristow ]
Our focus for this edition is on history and we have some interesting snippets on amateur radio assessment, Funding for conference travel, the Lynwood Scout Hall and its Radar history as well as the first satellite transmission from VK6.  Bob introduces us to the “Heavisde layer” and there’s more.

We have our usual segments with our diary and reminders of upcoming events and there’s Roy’s helpline of course!
