What enhances your radio hobby experience? Perhaps you use a paper-log book of your own design or use a PC/Mac based software solution. Maybe you record your reception for posterity - how do you do it?
I have been recording radio reception since 1972 (sadly, my cassette collection only goes back to 1975) - I still use cassette from time to time, but I also use Sony MiniDisc - there are other mediums... so discuss yours.
The radio hobby is not complete without the many fine books that are available. Some of our new radio hobbyists might not be familiar with them. We talk about it here.
