1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Used to be into that several decades ago CQ, CQ, CQ, CQDX......that is about all I can remember. Back then everyone built their own transmitters etc. It would have been unthinkable to have off-the-shelf gear. I learned about these new fangled "Transistors" at the time.... We built stuff with great big vacuum valves.....ohhhh the good old days.
