President Lincoln 2 - Engineering Menu 7 Months On!

It has been over 7 months since the Engineering Menu was found on the Lincoln 2 and the video has been viewed in 58 different countries. 

Most of the settings have been fathomed out but has anyone actually needed to use them?

Maybe you could let me know!

German SSB Contest Today 13/09/2014

Info from the Charlie Tango Forum:

Just to let you know that on Saturday, Sept 13th 2014 there is an SSB contest in Germany on EU legal mid-band CB. So, there's a fair chance to catch some activity on the air from Germany between 1800 and 2400 local German time, which is 1700 to 2300 UK time. Let's hope for some good short skip between continental Europe and UK and, of course, some serious DX as well.

The Future Of Amateur Radio!

OFCOM have launched a consultation in respect of the future use of Amateur Radio in the UK:


This consultation sets out our proposals for updating the terms and conditions of the amateur radio licence.

These proposals include changes which would provide amateurs with access to some frequency bands previously available only through the variation of individual licences.

The consultation follows changes announced in our April statement on Public Sector Spectrum Release(-1-), where we set out our decision to remove access for amateur radio operators to certain frequencies in the 2300 MHz and 3400 MHz ranges in order to support the release of these bands by the Ministry of Defence.
This consultation, which is likely to be of interest to those in the amateur radio community, closes on 20 October 2014.
