100, 50, and 25 years ago in QST: QRM, finding parts, the internet in 1995

October 1920 The only article of interest to me in the October 1920 QST is “A Paper on QRM” by John Gray, 6MZ.  QRM is still sometimes a problem today, but the QRM problem in 1920 was a much different one. They were still using spark-gap transmitters in 1920, and radio gear was pretty broadband. As 6MZ put it, All radio communication is more or less affected by interference, but the situation is particularly bad in amateur work. When you come to thing about it this is not very surprising.

‘The Kid Detective’ Trailer: Adam Brody is a Grown-Up Child Detective

Abe Applebaum used to be a big shot. Or, at least, as big of a big shot as a kid detective could be. When he was younger, he set up his own mini-detective agency and solved mini-mysteries, to much acclaim. Now, however, he’s a bored, sad-sack adult, pining for his days of youthful glory. He’s still a detective, albeit a less enthusiastic one, working lame, easy-to-solve cases. And then a real mystery falls into his lap. Watch The Kid Detective trailer below.

"'Part of me was living behind this screen of men’s expectations,' she explained. 'That’s why I made some of them quite grotesque — the idea that I was this passive woman, being looked at. But behind my eyes, I knew what was going on.'"   From "Margaret Nolan obituary/Glamour model and actress who starred in Goldfinger and the Carry On films and epitomised ‘everything cool in the Sixties’" (London Times).  Nolan played the character who was painted gold and who appears in the opening credit...
