Astrolabe or inclinometer? by Andrew Rowland[_2_]
Been to a couple of houses recently surrounded on all sides by tall trees. One in particular was very keen to get Sky and we spent some time looking for locations where a dish might be able to peer through a small gap in the foliage. I used an inclinometer app on my phone, but found it next to impossible to hold it steady at 23.1° while sighting along it to see if we were looking at sky or...

Sky News v BBC News by Bill Wright[_3_]
Sky had a still picture and a witness report of the M20 bridge collapse 25 minutes before the BBC showed anything. Sky also had video just a few minutes after the still picture. I wonder if people are now think of Sky rather than the BBC when they are a witness at a dramatic event. Hmm... Bill

20" TV with Freeview HD? by David[_13_]
I'm looking for a TV for our motor home; the current Sony has suffered a plastic failure around the bracket mount at the back. If this is not easy to repair then it will be relegated to in house using the stand and replaced by new. I've looked up the specs and it was only 720p and DVB-T but we have had it a good few years. I'm looking for a replacement at around the same size (I think I...

Freeview channels shuffled again by Dave W
I just noticed in the current Radio Times that Dave Ja Vue is now 79 instead of last week's 84. So I did a rescan - some new channels popped up, but nothing of note. Most numbers are unaffected. -- Dave W

Apps by Brian Gaff
Now that phones and tablets have re established the great idea of clients for making things easier to access, sorry they now call them apps,but still they are bespoke programs to access certain things or automate some tasks. So when will we see a universal client for windows that allows one to play all the channels content from their we sites with just the same interface? That should have...

Help with TV please by Mr Pounder Esquire
A while ago we were given a Logic 22" LED TV. The guy who gave it to us said that it belong to his mother and it was not switching on. She bought a new one. I plugged it in and it worked fine. She did not want it back. The wife is not too good and has been watching this telly in bed. She goes to bed early :-( I watch very little telly. She insists that the power to the telly is turned off on...

Static rain by Brian Gaff
A few days ago when we had that really very hot weather and a few half hearted attempts at rain. my scanning radio on mose vhf and uhf frequencies was producing ticking noises that got faster as the rain fell faster. I understand this is static rain but just what is discharging to what and if its that charged why do not we get lightening instead? I've often pondered this. Back in the old...

Hawes hidden by Bill Wright[_3_]
I watched the Country Bus programme tonight. It was very good. The bus went up Swaledale and then across Buttertubs to Hawes, and then further up Wensleydale. There was one mystery. All the way through Hawes the camera was on the driver, so apart from a few shop fronts whizzing past we didn't see Hawes at all. This seems very strange because the buildings around the market place are very...

Are You Being Duped? by Graham.[_12_]
Why couldn't they have got authentic telephones? https://www.flickr.com/gp/g3zvt/DHs6L1 Mrs Slocome's is clearly a prop-man's mash-up. I thought Mr Granger's looked like something I had seen before, but the hookswitch would have to defy gravity. https://www.flickr.com/gp/g3zvt/DHs6L1

Marginal TV reception by Vir Campestris
We're 25 miles or so from the transmitter (Sandy). Near us there are some that are almost at out height - and with trees on them. We've had some problems with signal dropout - and my wife suspects it's on windy days. So it's probably the trees messing with the signal... Is there anything we can do short of building a mast ourselves, or taking a chainsaw to an entire hilltop? Andy

BBC Four HD on Freeview by Max Demian
Has anyone managed to tune into BBC Four HD on Freeview channel 106 since the Olympics? It's said to have 'moved' (I think back to COM7): my Sony TV, which usually updates itself, doesn't have a channel 106, but it does have CBeebies HD (which timeshares with BBC Four HD) on channel 124. I want to make sure it's really there before I attempt to retune my Humax Fox.

The girl who says 'no' by Bill Wright[_3_]
Me: Have you got any four by four posts, but long ones, maybe three and a half metres? Girl in timber yard office (who has been needlessly obstructive on several previous occasions): No. Me: What's the longest you've got? Girl: We might have some ten foot. Not sure. Might only have eight foot. Me: Well can you cut me some longer ones? Girl: How can we make long ones from short ones? Me: I...

DAB messing about again by Brian Gaff
What is it with stations on DAB they get a slot they last maybe a few months to a year, then suddenly vanish without any notice. Jack and Jack 2 seem to have done this. The former of these used to break the mould and play stuff from all sorts of artists, as they put it, we play what we want. Quit entertaining I found. Also of course more messing about on Freeview means that My 5 is now...

Someone talk me out of this madness by Graham.[_12_]
I've saw a 1949 vintage Cossor model 916 in an antiq^H^H^H^H^HJunk shop window and I am thinking of buying it as a restoration project. I have already downloaded the circuit, and some ideas for a generating 405 line pictures. It appears that Kat Manton off http://www.vintage-radio.net/forum did some work on this about 10 years ago and achieved what many thought was impossible; a PC based...
