4. The history of radio jamming

With the increased re-occurrence of interference to the Amateur bands from over the horizon HF Radar, this YouTube presentation on the use of radio jamming used during and since the second world war I found interesting.


5.Online collection for raspberry pi owners.

A few in our club have the Raspberry Pi which I am sure you know about.  I just discovered a FREE online collection of magazines re this device(an what amateur doesn’t like free stuff).

The Pi runs LINUX so any Linux based amateur radio stuff will run on it.
