Listening to Hancock's "The Radio Ham" on BBC Sounds today, The Lad Himself says he's broadcasting on the short wave band at 10.4m at 250 mega cycles per second.

Speed of propagation is wavelength x frequency, so 10.4 x 250 x (10^6) m/s = . Or 2.6 x (10^9) m/s. Say 8.7 x the speed of light.

By great good fortune my Scouts are taking part in the Jamboree on the Air this weekend. As well as finding out what the weather is doing in Tokyo, I'll see if they can work out Galton and Simpson's error.

I'm running a station here in the Cotswolds, GB0GS it's a short contact but do listen out for us.

We will be joining in with my troop Saturday afternoon and through to Sunday morning. I think we may have a radio ham for some of Saturday afternoon but I am not sure. Edit to add. Yes we do call sign G2ML. Jid 5GB26C

I read that and thought what an ironic name (though I know it's Arabic and just coincidentally looks like English, doesn't even sound the same). Anywayz, what's cringeworthy about "deteriorating by the month"? After all, as someone's sig line says, "rust never sleeps".
