October 2017

Coming in October we’ve the school report of the blog. Thanks to analytics we’ve managed to get some figures for the blog since it really started. By that I mean from when it actually started getting stuff posted and not in the first year when it was just sitting almost empty as no real interest.

To give some clues the analytics are based on first contact so actually aren’t correct as it doesn’t show if I replied 1 time to a message or indeed 12 times but you get to see the life of the blog and what is going on behind the scenes.

The range of emails are from around 11 till over 14,863 and cover all companies such as CRT, Qixiang, Avanti, President, Team, TYT, HYT, RM, Sirio, Stryker, Team, Tagra, Konektor, Ranger, Magnum, Kenwood, Yaesu, Icom, Alinco, Motorola, Baofeng, and others.

So we will add some of the figures here and it’s quite staggering. And for asked information then Modifications & nobody helps me are the current top. It’s quite amazing really, and this year the amount of emails from the USA and Canada have increased crazily too. So thanks to those guys who’ve wrote to me.

I can say in 2018 changes have to happen. Either I make some changes or the blog will be deleted from the server. It’s been a very very hard year for me blog wise so some things will need to be changed. I’ve already stopped adding ideas here mostly as have seen them being used on some stuff coming to market so not good. I’ve stopped communications with several places as when it’s one sided then best it is no sided. Overall stuff will change, it needs to change.

Questions Included:

    • Hi Rob, sound advice I think. When you see the figures it will shock many. Just today alone 19 mails about CRT, 67 about President and 12 about others. That’s just emails landing without any replies. Think I’ll set up PayPal.me, advice costs.


  1. I always enjoy your blog and the information you share. It seems in this day, the same people that look at your blog and send you questions or demands could easily type those same questions into Google to find answers. It seems the internet had made people lazy, and they think that because you post information, you owe them something.

    Thank you for your efforts, your blog is still the best source of radio information available.


  2. Thank you again for all the effort you put into the blog. I watch every new post and always very interesting.
    I respect your slowing down, because you also have personal circumstances that need attention. But I hope you keep the blog going!
