Re: Seeing Africa last evening from Nerja

From 394m we regularly see something, it is quite clearly the tops if the Rif mountains, the peaks line up with a compass and a map. I have little interest in the mechanism but am satisfied that it is North Africa. The last time or maybe the time before that this came up I did a calculation that pro...

Re: "Can't hear what they are saying..."

Re: Amateur radio ham

A scanner sweeps a band of frequencies possibly preset say 118 to 136 Mhz (that's the Aviation communication range) and stops when it finds a busy frequency. Legality is down to the individual administration, obviously the police bands are out of play as is Airband in some countries (UK certainly) t...

Re: Amateur radio ham

You are way outside my expertise unfortunately living in Spain. If you were in Manchester I would tell you to get to the Stockport Radio Society where there is a wealth of experience. Here are some random thoughts. In my opinion you will need a Spanish license for which there will probably be a writ...

Empadronamiento

I had a need to get a current certificate, the silly three month rule operated by some departments, so yesterday found me in a deserted Torrox town hall. When they saw I was a campo dweller I was shown reams of printout of ex-pats whose registration had expired. They were wanting help to locate the ...
