Our friend Bert is once again melting solder. And he has launched a blog. (SolderSmoke listeners will remember Bert as the advisor to the University of Virginia radio club. That was the club that had its HQ in some sort of nuclear reactor building. They put up a huge wire antenna, but then took it down when they realized bike riders could possibly, uh, run into it.) Bert has some interesting stuff on his blog, including an article on conductive paint and one on the use of mail boxes as antenna tuner enclosures. And he reports that he has dusted off a BITX 20 kit. Welcome back Bert!
