Facts of the day

27 November 2015

History - It was on the night of 27th November 1923 that the first transatlantic short wave radio contact was made. It took place between radio hams: Leon Deloy (8AB) in France and Fred Schnell (U1MO) in the USA.

Quote - Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, you'll be a mile from them, and you'll have their shoes. - Jack Handey, Deep Thoughts

Fact - Jack Kilby's first integrated circuit contained just one transistor. Today the Intel Itanium 2 contains 410 million.
