UK Football - NOT amateur radio

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/tables .

The English Premier League seems more to do with money these days with many players and managers from outside the UK. I can understand this but feel sure we have untapped talent. The lower leagues are less glamorous and get far less TV coverage.

When it comes to football I admit to being a "fireside fusilier" in that I'm gunner do this or that, but rarely go to a match. I follow the fortunes of Plymouth Argyle and my local team Cambridge United and check where they are in their League (League 2). At the moment Plymouth are doing quite well and have a chance of automatic promotion at the end of the season. Cambridge are also doing pretty well too.

UPDATE 1557z:  71 minutes in Argyle were 0:1 up. In the end they lost 2:1. Had they won, they would have had a very good chance of automatic promotion, but they threw it away. Football!!

I am not a keen football man! Yes, I agree, it needs more amateur radio projects Steve. It is my health that has been preventing these.

I understand Roger...

Maybe seperate it out into another general Blog, it's like looking through the wood for the trees.

I will not write on mine if I have got nothing to say about something Ham related.

Here's an idea for you Roger, for some radio content.

A good article on practical techniques for adding AM to transmitters, semiconductor types.

None of this seems to be covered anymore for MANY years in amateur radio handbooks.

Practical advice like understanding component ratings (for example a 10w PA on CW is really
suitable for a 2.5w 100% modulated AM TX), high and low level mod techniques, where to
inject modulation, modulation transformer requirements, might help to get new experimenters building AM rigs again ?

And I mean some half decent AM rigs, not 100mw fun projects, but ones that produce real
watts ;-)
