Re: DIM versus CIM

A friend of mine, recently, received a membership renewal form for BCA/BCRA. He was a bit puzzled by this, since as a member of a caving club, he pays his sub to the BCA as part of his membership of the caving club (a CIM, in other words). He was further puzzled to note that as a CIM, he is unable ...

PCBs for Flashgun Slave Units

Not exactly anything to do with cave communications but, since I make the rules ... :roll:

After being out of stock for a while, I have ordered a new batch of PCBs for my flashgun slave unit (the standard version, not the digital-camera version). See http://caves.org.uk/flash/newsletter.html

Re: PCB stock

CREG currently has four sets of HeyPhone PCBs for sale, and one set of boards for the Pease beacon. That Pease beacon PCB has now been sold. As I understand it, the position is that Brian Pease is not getting any more boards made. The PCB design is locked into using a particular manufacturer. Brian...

Hidden Earth 2007 - Change of Venue!

Hmmm. I have just noticed that nobody has made a posting about this. so here goes.... Having managed to finalise a venue for 2007 in plenty of time this year, we have – unfortunately – had to change it. The school is converting its gym into classrooms, which leaves us short of a lecture theatre – a ...

Looking on the bright side, I DID get a BCRA newsletter the other day, but since I'm not a member of the BCRA, per se, I'm not sure whether to classify this as a screw-up, or as a bonus. Definitely a bonus :-) BCRA and BCA made the decision to "share" newsletters during this protracted "consolidati...

(Sigh), Well, since Glenn Jones's address doesn't seem to be forthcoming, I have little choice other than to send it to the Great Clearing House in the Sky. There are several reasons why a "clearing house" is used, and why BCA would (Im sure) urge you to continue to use it even if Glenn's address d...
