It would be good if there was less attacking for 'point scoring' purposes -that does no one any good, and damages the progress of radio in the UK. I think the time has come when 'Hobby Radio' on the MW / LW bands for anyone should get the ok in the UK. A simple registration as is with CB being sufficient -has that been relaxed now? It could have an upper power limit of 10 watts to begin with and see what happens. Hobby Radio would also remove much of the 'sniping', as the philosophy of "I can do much better than 'whatever', and my new station will prove it!". That too will find the best radio formats that attract listeners, with a 'parallel' web stream if desired. I know if Garry's material is on 'real radio' it would attract many. Imagine if Garry's stuff could be TX'ed on Allouis or Droitwich LW!! LW does have a future, if its limited place in today's digital 'culture' is understood. It would never be mainstream, and that's an advantage. It can provide a place that radio enthusiasts across the globe could use without causing interference (QRM) or annoyance to 'Joe Public' users of the VHF FM and DAB. Maybe something could be 'born' out of this. It just needs co-operation between us to find the best way. With kind regards, David LW
