21st Century hobby

Just received news from my local Club here in Germany of a new video “Amateur radio - a 21st Century hobby” published by the RSGB:

It’s really good and is aimed at young people interested in technology, not only in Britain, but hopefully elsewhere.




Sorry, couldn’t resist!

Great video, well presented. Have posted a link on FB and Twitter.

yes Karl, I saw that too.

A most peculiar type of key, requiring the operator to send short and long elements manually! My electronic keyer would be confused by that. :smile:
