Decided to make a video about some of my old radio kit the other day, only to discover none of the kit would talk to each other. Tried various computers still no luck, then I had that sinking feeling #drivers and #firmware updates needed. The moral of the story is use your kit more often and keep it up to date.It takes me forever finding firmware and driver updates. Any of you guys had the same problem ? Terry EA5IHM.

Having a break from the heat of Spain ( 35C in the shade at the moment ). I am going on a round trip visiting the grand kids and family ( my wife likes the heat so staying with the hounds ).
Will be giving the VHF repeaters a call starting 11/24.08.2015.First stop Spalding, then Manchester, Liverpool, Wirral and then back to Spain.
So listen out and give me a call if you hear me over the air.
The declared Nepal 9N1 Emergency Net Control has now closed down.
A job well done by all involved. Emergency work will still be on going for some time in Nepal.
Emergency traffic will now be passed on using 14.300 mhz,this is net control. Relay stations will still be required to keep QRM at bay.
Please keep these frequencies free for emergency radio traffic in and out of Nepal.

Ham Radio and Short Wave Listeners are free to monitor the frequencies.
