Here we are... just iPhone footage I'm afraid. It did sound good though. 

I'll ask him to drop by if he can but Brain Collins' article on sound systems from the May 2018 issue might be a good starting point.

Thread: Anyone interested in a Nats meet-up?

nice to chat GeoffPosted by Geoff Sleath on 27/08/2018 21:49:32:

Avice and I were there all weekend, including sitting in the holding area on Friday afternoon. We had to do a circuit of Grantham when our usual route was closed for (presumably) road works. Other than that both our outward and return journey were OK.

Saturday was a bit breezy and not exactly super warm but OK. I usually spend time watching the scale competition which I enjoyed with the excellent commentary that makes it good for we spectators. At 12.30 I made my way to the area near the BMFA tent but didn't see any obvious grouping of forum members but spoke to Graham Ashby later in the afternoon.....

....David 😉

Nice to chat Geoff 👍

PS I'm sure Graham and/or David will try to make at least one of the dates as well - that'll add a bit of glamour!

... a touch of something 😉

Yep, will try and get along 👍

Thanks STF, Beth's a bit busy running a show stall this weekend but I'll pass on your kind remarks.

Thread: All change at RCM&E

Thanks for the good wishes everyone, much appreciated.

Hi folks,

Just a update from me to let you know about a change at RCM&E. As some of you will already know, I’ll be stepping down from the editor’s role in a few weeks time and Graham Ashby will be returning to the chair.

As some of you may also be aware, I had a little health blip in April and I’ve taken the opportunity to recalibrate the life/work balance going forward, hence this decision. I’ll still be around of course, freelancing for the magazine but thought I’d take this opportunity to let you know.

Graham’s looking forward to his second spell as editor and, I’ll see you at some of the shows, fly-ins, the Nats, or on a hill. 😉

Best wishes

Post deleted, stay cool folks please.

I'm sorry Lorenz no. Appreciated that it's valuable to some but it's a time/resource matter I'm afraid.

If anyone has time on their hands though and would like to create one for recent years then I'm sure I could find a free subscription by way of a thank you. Just drop me a PM.

Thread: RCM&E March 2018 issue
23/02/2018 06:38:23

Thanks for the feedback folks.

As Tom says, neither supplement contained brand new material so, if you're a print & digital subscriber then it's all in the digital archive including the supplements themselves. Sadly, the cost of producing and dispatching copies for overseas precludes inclusion.

Selling magazines can be a challenging business these days and occasional offers on the shelves in UK newsagents (particularly WH Smith who - needless to say - sell more copies of the magazine than any other retailer) will come along from time to time. We have to sometimes give the UK casual buyers (still the largest market) a nudge from time to time.

I can appreciate the sentiments of course and we'll keep things under review going forward.

A 'heads up' for tonight, it'll be on catch-up too afterwards I assume:

The episode of 'Walks with my Dog' is to be screened on More4 at 21.00 on Thursday 25 January. This features Victoria Pendleton walking her dogs over Ivinghoe Beacon and meeting up with ISA members Jim Wright, Sean Bannister and David Woods.
