Radio Scotland silent on DAB by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
Both yesterday morning and again this morning we've found that BBC Scotland is 'silent' on our DAB tuners here. The display shows the station name. And further info says "Tayside" which is our region. The downstairs 'hifi' sic Pure tuner shows a quality of 100 and a fair signal level well above what would normally squeltch output. Are they broadcasting on DAB? I presume its not a transmitter...

My Jump Leads Are Bigger Than Yours ... by Java Jive[_2_]
I want to live out in the wilds of the country, and am prepared to rough it accordingly, but, as a result of the storms at the end of last week, no electricity for four days out of the last six is taking things a bit far, especially as it means no heating, no hot water, no hot food ... Also, three lots of puddles on floors, lost a chimney pot, garden shed leaning at a drunken, seasick-making...

radio waves make you ill? by Bill Wright[_2_]
If you are affected by radio waves getting into your brain, making you irrational and eccentric and causing you to believe all sorts of wacky things, the answer can be found in your own kitchen. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11023364/IMG_20150112_190433.jpg Bill

The Sky At Night - bad news by CD
I was hoping that she was on a 1 year contract & would be gone this month, but she's back tonight. The new producers have really trashed the show IMO, all the regulars have gone apart from Pete Lawrence who is relegated to a cameo. Him & Lintott should bail out & produce their own show & stick it on Youtube, with the old regulars of course. CD

BT box oddity by Bill Wright[_2_]
Fault was that the BT box had pixellation on some channels, and the TV set connected on loopthrough was the same. The TV set was a Sony with a diagnostics page and this showed s/n ratio fluctuating from 40dB down to 12dB. With the BT box out of circuit the Sony was fine. Aerial signals from Belmont were good and healthy. Another BT box arrived and was just the same. A third box ditto. The BT...

Rhombics for uhf? by Brian Gaff[_2_]
I did test this idea some years ago, and they seem to work very well though even at these frequencies they can be quite big. They have always fascinated me because of thier directionality when they have a terminating resistor at the other end to the feed point, and I never did quite understand why half the signal did not vanish into the load it obviously was.

TBM UK by Brian Gaff[_2_]
What dross is this now? Got the indication, found new channel(s) yesterday. My God, literally. Wholesome, its described as, American Holy Crap is what it actually is. I'm beginning to feel we need to protect ourselves from crappy US shows a lot more. I found God today, and let me tell you about it. Very careless to have people dropping god about the place for people to fall over I say. ...

Cry for help by Woody[_5_]
If any of the regulars out there - Bill W, Tony S, Mark C, or Brian G - are seeing this message could you send me a mail to the address below to say you can see it. I have had major system problems thanks to so-called Internet Security and I'm not sure if my news feed is dead or if there is some other problem. TIA --

LG TV Sound Bar - Subwoofer. by Alaric
I have just bought a sound bar which includes a subwoofer speaker. As regards the positioning of this speaker, would its performance be affected adversely if I position it on one of its sides as opposed to upright. Alaric
