Date of next D&ED Reunion Lunch now confirmed.

On 8th February 2015 I added a PDF version of On Air to bbceng and, according to web statistics, the book has been downloaded 1300 times!  I am pleased, but somewhat amazed, by this because the book was first published 13 years ago and the subject matter is somewhat specialised.  Unfortunately the PDF file that I provided was rather poor with respect to the format of the content, but I am delighted to say that I received offers to improve it.  A much better version is now available for download from this page, which includes an acknowledgement to the people concerned.  I am most grateful to them.

Two significant additions:

    40 more Technical Instructions, which have been scanned by Nick Cutmore.

    Many interesting pictures, with captions, showing difficult work being carried out high up on masts, from Tony Smith.
