With so many radios and mics listed in the Mic Wiring section I have stopped counting them and also removed the numbers of radios/mics listed from the index page, if you're looking for a mic or radio scheme and it's not listed then ask and I may be able to track it down.

Support for smaller screens has now been dropped, the minimum size "written for" is now 1024 pixels wide or greater.

I have removed the Translations to German, French & Spanish from the Mic Wiring area in favour of the Microsoft® Translator which, with any luck, should appear at top left of all pages and translate the whole page into more languages than I was prepared to do! (over 30).

Some "dead" links removed and a link added for all your machine & grub screw needs (including washers nuts) added to the Component Suppliers page.
