Great words Victor.

Lee, is the “forgotten password” link now fixed? I believe it just sends you in a loop.

Hi Gary,

You too mate, hope you and family are keeping well. Smile

In a topsy-turvy world the old radio & bits of wire in the loft have been a mental lifesaver, but sometimes let down when the skip fails or the "5/9, 73s, QRZ" responses crackle back from the speaker.

The Charlie Tango forum is my "Radio No.2" go to. No QSB, always a lovely reception and often great QSOs Wink

I don't think you guys comprehend how much your work is appreciated and the thanks you truly deserve.

All the best, stay safe.
Victor

Wow.! I thought for a moment I was on a different website. No seriously guy's you've done a fantastic job with the forum. Love the new layout and the propagation chart thing at the top, I just need to learn how to read it. Perhaps there's a dummies guide somewhere in the forum. I haven't looked yet.
I second everything Victor said.
Outstanding job guys. Big thanks to all concerned.
Cheers
Stay safe

All good this end Vic, I'm really surprised how many people have returned back to the hobby during lock down, we've enjoyed a massive membership surge. Very Happy

Thanks Vic, we all do this because of our love of the wireless mate. I just wish I had a little more time to be on the radio. lol!

I'll keep this one brief because I have to be at work for 5:30 tomorrow morning. No rest for the wicked as they say!! Stay safe Vic.

Is there any reason why the "Solar Terrestrial Data and Band Condition info" panel is stuck at 18th Jun on my home PC but is updated correctly on my samsung tablet?

I have logged out and back in to the forum, deleted the site from my bookmarks and still the solar info panel shows 18th June on my PC.

It seems I have to clear my browsing data every time before I log in if I want to see a updated "Solar Terrestrial Data and Band Condition info" panel

Hi Lee,

Chatbox log in seems vastly improved, but anything you can do about the auto log out which seems to be about every 15 minutes or so ?

keep up the good work.
