Radio and Television + Archive
2 of my bigger interests and hobbies.
Radio, especially shortwave is one of the better interests I have. Radio is a form factor that I have a keen interest in, with me going in the late-afternoon/early evening to listen and hear what I can pick up.
Television is also a big interest of mine, from the broadcast end to the live stream kind. Television comes in many factors, but what makes it interesting isn't just the news or the shows, it's the technology.
|What is archival and why is it important?||Where I am in the archive community|
Archival, according to Wikipedia, is an accumulation of historical records – in any media – or the physical facility in which they are located.
So, where do I fit in in all this? I fit in in a really niche archival area: logo capturing/uploading. I have an interest in these logos almost to the point where it's almost a "hyperinterest" and is a member on the CLG Wiki Discord server.
Why do I do this?Because of the joy of it.
Do you have "X" on VHS?Please see my videolist, which'll guide you through what tapes I have, which ones I wish to have, and which ones I will be making available or not available.
