Re: SNR/Link Margin up again.


Hello Hartmut,

Thanks very much for your clarification.

Totally off topic, but thinking about ORF, I can still remember the interval time signal from Radio Wein before the news when on a school holiday to Austria in the late 50's or early 60's on a small Perdio transistor radio I had.

Der, der a der, der a der, dah, dah.

Can't find a recording anywhere but found this which will bring back lots of memories to all you, like me, child SW Listeners:

Many 'classics,' and remembered 'jingles' including Vatican Radio - which is still played, I believe.
And of course especially in those days from countries 'behind the Iron Curtain.'

Best wishes,
