I was given this item by a Filofax friend of mine. It combines my love of Filofax and the love of radio in to one! It dates from 1928. The leather organiser is a little delicate now, but I’m in the process of preserving it to stop it getting any worse. The paper pages though are fine, I’m keeping those separate. See the post over on Philofaxy for the full story behind this remarkable find.
Those of you who like High Power RF engineering in the form of MF transmitters should take a look at this video, that features my old friend Andy Matheson G3ZYP who I first met when I was in Cyprus back in 1983. Andy showed me how to use Wordstar for the first time on a CP/M computer… memories!!
The 648 kHz service is about to disappear at the end of March, never to be replaced. I’m not sure if the DRM service will be continuing from Orfordness or not.
