Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions of the Newsgroup
The FAQ files were set up and maintained by Hank VanCleef during the
early years of the group until March 1996.
Gerard Tel then took over until August this year, when he called in for
others to take over the task. It was voted on, and what was agreed as
a good idea is that the FAQ be split into separate ones for Acoustic
Phonographs and for Radios (including televisions, etc). George Conklin
will host the FAQ for Acoustic Phonographs, and myself for this Radio FAQ.
So, even though it's been a couple months coming, here it is at last.
My apologies for it having taken so long to put up, but life has been
rather unexpectedly busy lately and I've therefore taken longer than I
intended in updating the site.
This first Web-based FAQ may contain many errors (not technical ones, but
ones related to HTML and general layout or omissions: I also apologise in
advance for these, and please e-mail me if you find any such significant
errors. Constructive critisism is also welcome; bear in mind I am already
editting these pages such that there are more links, etc., than appear now.
