Sprat on CD

Yesterday, I received my copy of "Sprat on CD" from the GQRP.
"Sprat" is the quarterly technical magazine from GQRP.
The current Sprat on CD contains issues 1 - 132 which brings you
right up-to-date. Each issue of Sprat is in a separate PDF file
and the navigation on the CD is via HTML files. Therefore,
the CD can be used on any computer that has a PDF reader and a browser.

To order Sprat on CD

Sprat home page

The Sprat home page contains a link to a PDF with the table of contents
of all the issues of Sprat. Enough projects to last a life-time.

LilyPad Arduino

The LilyPad is an arduino board that is meant to be stitched
into an item of clothing. The little pads are to be connected
to conductive thread that would run to sensors, leds, etc. elsewhere on
the clothing. There must be a ham application jut waiting for this
technology. Perhaps a wearable PSK rig with a wristwatch display.
