About Posting a Comment

Comments are moderated before they will appear on the website, this is a manual process and may take some time. Please be patient.

Author Name is a required field.

Email Address is optional, but without one I won't be able to contact you back. It is never shown or linked on the website. You can always just email me if you'd rather not post a public comment. I generally reply in-line with a comment rather than email you back, unless I want to discuss something in private or off topic. Please check back to see when I reply.

Website URL is optional, if supplied the Author Name will be hyperlinked to this URL.

You may use wikitext in the body, preview may be handy here. Don't worry if you can't figure them out, just give me a hint what you want linked to what and I'll do it during moderation. Wikitext is not BBcode!

Spammers: Please don't bother wasting your time scripting up posts to this form. Everything is moderated, your post will never be seen on the web even transiently, there is no way to even view it by its internal ID, it will never be indexed. I will simply delete your post in the moderation interface. If I'm your target audience you're really on the wrong track; I'll never click on a URL in your garbage. The post content is not emailed to me (and I don't use a Win32 mail client anyway), I view the posts in plain text in the moderation interface so no clever tricks of any kind will make anything you type be interpreted by anything other than me, a human. Just give up and go elsewhere please!

I don't really appreciate the view I think, I was born here in Manly hospital, so I've seen it most days of my life.

I miss VNG. I used to use it for time reference when I was a junior member of the BAA NSW Branch. Its a shame we lost it, WWVH is just too unreliable, especially at the bottom of the solar cycle.

I recently narrowly missed a GPS module on eBay that had a 10 MHz output as well as the normal PPS and RS-232 outputs. It would have been very useful as a reference, most of my counters have a 10 MHz internal reference.

You certainly have a wonderful view there!

It's a pity we no longer have a local time reference transmitted in this region. I remember tuning in to VNG on "4.5, 7.5 and 12MHz"

I guess GPS is the modern equivalent.
