Re: my trip to Ban Dung

Well VOA was and has always been nothing but a crackle and a fart. Radio Australia out of Darwin was a very much stronger signal till they closed in 2003. I'm less than 20 km from that facility and as such should be blown out of my living room with the signal strength. The jury is still out! :-$ Ye...

In the last world war, a whole secret service dept was set up to read newspapers and record news broadcasts. The sole purpose to counteract any snippets appearing that could be of assistance to the enemy or be used by them to discredit the allies. This was located in Cheltenham England. There wasn'...

Anyone no how long that station has existed ? Built in the late 80s/early 90s. Commissioned 1993. In service 1994. Did they need a lot of room to avoid sabotage to the facilities, could be. Yes.

The "transmitter" is actually seven transmitters, each capable of radiating 750kW peak power on shortwave frequencies. The larg...

"phpBB : Critical Error" while trying to access fo

Over the last few weeks I seem to be getting more and more errors while trying to read forum posts. The error is:

phpBB : Critical Error
Could not connect to the database

Also, it seems to be far slower than the old forum.

Is there a website hosting problem?
