Vintage Radio will be back soon. After a few weeks of testing, the site seems stable and has been performing well, though it needs to be back online and 'under load' in real world conditions for a final decision to be made on performance. Another article from Fred has been added to the list below, Part 1 of a story on an AM field strength meter.
I believe all is now well with site file repairs and the site has been working well on my own server for a few weeks now. Now comes the big decision - where to put it so it can be reached again. I am still of two minds here. One is saying find another webhost and just get the files up and running. The other is saying revert to self-hosting. The problem with the first option is that it will cost a lot of money to take that risk with placing trust in others again. The issue with the second option is that I need to set up an NBN connection somewhere. Only one is permitted in each household (stupid NBNCo rules) and the one currently available to me does not come with a static IP address so using that is also a deal breaker.
Whilst I am undertaking another unholy task - shifting house - I will try and make a decision as to hosting arrangement.
Below is some standby content (I don't have a better name for it) to help alleviate not having the forums. It doesn't take place of the forums but I suppose it's better than nothing.
Fred has released yet another article, an AM field strength meter:-

Fred has released another article, this time on a DAB to AM converter:-
It doesn't pay to use the road these days. It doesn't pay to be an insurance company either. Here's why:-
Fred tried to post an article to his thread on the Syncrodyne but the site went offline just before it could be uploaded. Here it is in living colour:-
