No1PC: A Collection of Amateur Radio Topics

A Collection of Amateur Radio Topics

Amateur radio is a great technical hobby - it deserves clear concise, accurate, technical information. Let's all do what we can to find and share the correct verifiable technical information so we're not challenged by mis-understood problems later on.

I'm the first to admit I don't know everything, I don't know what I don't know, I know there are a lot of things that I do not know, and there are many things that I do know, and if I need to know something I'm missing I will find out. If proven wrong, I will admit it and acquire correct information and knowledge.

Amid all of this, I'm not easily fooled by casual or anecdotal and especially unqualified or unverifiable 'knowledge'. I will NOT tolerate junk-/bad-science, and outright lies about technology and neither should you. Information or perception are not the same as knowledge. Knowledge is not the same as experience. Don't tell me what I have to do because you'd do it, instead tell me exactly what problem is solved and how.

Don't tell me anything that can't be verified, or tell me something that turns out to be incomplete or worse, false. I can't be corrected with the wrong information.

I've had a simple motto for years: Lack of the right information is a dangerous thing.

We're not discovering a new science here, or redefining proven science. Get the terms, their meaning and proper use right.

With that, let's start working toward ample, correct, accurate, verifiable, unambiguous information and correct practice.
