Thread: Dunkirk

Yup. Me too.Maybe there are some original news-reels around that will show the enormity of Operation Dynamo.

I was a kid at the time but I remember what was said by some of my family who were there and involved with the operation.

This film was more like a novel.

I have read that a new film of the Battle of Britain is likely to be made. God help us!

Tim yes

To me it was a bit like a novel rather than history.

Thread: Some dumb questions that have never been asked apparently

Yes, I do know that Percy. I did say that it was an additional benefit of joining a club.

Over hyped I thought. The filming was spectacular but the film did not convey the immense scale of the evacuation. However, how could it when we have no ships or aircraft to include in the action. That being the case why make the film?

The sudden appearance of the three spits breaking into the scene for the first time was very emotional.

I feel that the 1958 version was closer to the actual event.

David have you joined a local model flying club. Always a good thing to do if it is possible There, you would find loads of help and probably find someone who could effect the mode transfer for you. Also, in addition, you would have insurance cover, which is really necessary.

Thread: Is traditional building a disappearing art?
14/04/2017 08:56:21

Chinese, Peter?

A lot of words in this post about kits to build from. Very many of we aeromodellers have always built from plans (Cliff Charlesworth our Peter Miller et al). There's nothing like a new plan to gloat over and savour the forthcoming project

Thread: Futaba 8J 2.4 Transmitter and suspect DX6
16/03/2017 13:09:34

I've used Futaba radios for over 30 years without any problems. I now use the Futaba 14SG. Futaba is fairly expensive but the quality is there. FrSky compatible receivers work well with the SG14.

A good number of flyers use the FrSky Taranis now too.

Thread: Rubbish radio reception Ford Focus

Some confusion here gangster. Radio 4 can be accessed on 198khz long wave. That was what I originally said.  I said nothing about 200khz.

Current BBC radio website and the current Radio Times and my own experience confirms 198khz as I stated.

Wires crossed somewhere.........

The whole thing is that today not many car radios have a long wave facility so it's impossible to listen to radio 4 in the car, which is a great pity.

Gangster, Radio Times give the frequency as 198 LW.

13/03/2017 07:45:31

Yes the Light Programme was on 1500 as Chris says. Radio 4 is currently on 198 long wave.

My last car had long wave reception and as we live in France we were able receive BBC radio 4. However there is no long wave available on the new car's radio. This seems common to all new car radios. I know that the BBC have stated that very special valves are used for long wave transmission and that there are only a couple of these valves left. 'When they're gone, they're gone'. So will be BBC long wave. Pity......

In the house we have, of course, internet radio so no problem there but it will be a shame to have to listen to Radio 5 (This is Radio5 ..This is Radio5... You are listening to Radio5... every every few minutes) and on a bad medium wave reception to boot.

Ah! c'est la vie!

All back to normal now without me having to make any adjustments.

What is the situation with you, Andy and Robin?

A big red button to push to rid the world of all those rotten types out there. Thankfully the vast majority of people are decent and kind.

All of the above points are as they should be but I still have to sign in each time I access the site. This does not apply to the many other websites that I use on a regular basis. So strange.

Thanks for the advice anyhow.
