National Radio Centre Opens   July 19th, 2012

The new National Radio Centre at Bletchley Park, Bedford was officially opened on Wednesday 11th July by Govt Minister Ed Vaizey.

Waters & Stanton were invited along to the ceremony as supporters of the new venture, having donated Heil headsets to the radio station at the venue. Jeff Stanton was very impressed with what the RSGB has built to showcase Amateur Radio & communications technology.

Bletchley Park was of course the home of code-breaking work during the Second World War and now boasts an increasingly popular museum, which the new NRC compliments superbly. 

Below are some pictures that Jeff Stanton took during his visit to the National Radio Centre.

The National Radio Centre is currently open to the public from 11am to 4.30pm on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday each week.

Website Product Prices   April 30th, 2008

I have noticed a few phone calls from customers about products on the website not having the correct prices displayed. This is a common problem for a lot of users of any website, and is caused by a page being saved to your computer, and then loaded from memory as opposed to loading from the website. This function serves to save resources for both the customer and us, as neither have to load the web pages each and every time, but can have an adverse effect when the user is trying to see the most up to date information.

The way to solve this, is by what’s called an “unconditional refresh”, which forces your web browser load the page from the website and not from memory. You can do this on most Windows based browsers by holding the “Control (CTRL)” button and pressing the “F5” button at the same time. You can do the same on Mac OSX by holding the “Command (CMD)” button and pressing the “R” button at the same time.

Hope this helps any of you that were having problems with this.
– Dave.
