Re: What Kit's would be nice for 2021 (what is a NDB?)

NDB = Non Directional Beacon like the old aircraft beacons that used to identify airports and give old time pilots a signal to follow to the airport or take reading from three or four beacons and use that to tell where they are...... they are slowly wearing out and not being replaced since GPS is much more accurate and receivers are so cheap.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Some radio enthusiasts still get a hoot listening for them in the long wave band and some even go so far as to head out in the wild open spaces (noise free places) for a listening contest on weekends.
