Re: Scala Radio

RadioToday says Gala test tx have begun, so I did a retune, but nothing there, only HEAT which causes the rx to hang on a non-DAB+ rx, or 'unavailable' on a modern rx

Re: The Beauty of Macros in Word Processing

Thanks BP. I use notepad constantly, though not for anything clever. I will install Notepad++ next time I can close all tabs and windows on my PC ;) I suppose you can have 20 tabs open in Notepad++ ? or do you have to run separate instances? Looks like I'll have to edit all my personal web pages to ...

Re: The Beauty of Macros in Word Processing

I have bought Textpad twice but now I use the free version. Macros are tricky to set up but there is help on the user forum.

Re: Tropo Building?

Thanks for those streams. I notice that they are a few seconds ahead of Le direct

Listening now to Le direct there was an announcement "vous écoutez Classique Plus". Very confusing, and the two channels have different programmes.

Thanks, I'll update my old bookmark

*edit* I see now that the url remains the same whichever 'musique' you're listening to, it's just a matter of looking for "Le direct"

Re: KBS World Radio 6095

49 Metres was long my favourite SW band. Always good in the middle of the night, but also interesting in the afternoon in wintertime. HCJB was there pretty much 24 hours, and the Far East later on, but coming the opposite path to what you're hearing in the Midwest. AIUI the Voice of the Andes is sti...
