  1. Good Evening,
    First time I have visited,well presented and some very interesting topics.

    Regards Roddy………….SW Scotland=Lockerbie

    1. Thank you for those words of encouragement. Google blog’s loss is WordPresses gain! Seriously this blog aims to be light hearted and varied. It was originally a web site concentrating only on radio, uk offshore, satellite, internet and digital. I decided it best to go for a blog which is quicker to update than a web page. I do have my original website still on the internet and if you would like to see what the site was like you may like to visit this link http://www.wirelesswaffle.net76.net/

      I would be interested to learn what radio you listen to – feel free to email me at wirewaffle@hotmail.com with an answer and I will be glad to include it in my blog – indeed if anyone has any views on radio please let me have them to share with the world wide web.
