Should we have a FAQ?
#17
I started this thread some time ago and I have collected some encouraging and some less encouraging comments from you. This is now my conclusion of what was communicated and my updated proposal (so don't blame anybody else if you don't like it).
  • The FAQ should only be on system blue, because that's where most questions of a general nature will come up.
  • Only relative simple things should be included in the list (see below), specialized technical question will still need to go to the normal forum.
  • The list should be short, otherwise people won't read it anyway. I think it should completely fit onto the screen, say less than 25 lines.
  • The whole effort should be limited and we should gather feedback from readers before considering going on.

This list is an example of what could be in such a FAQ:
  1. What do I have to know to be able to assemble and run such a system?
  2. How do I get one of these system blue?
  3. How do I check where I am on the waiting list?
  4. I received the kit, how do I solder the stuff together?
  5. What power supply should I have?
  6. How do I access the system interface?
  7. How do I test the assembled system?
  8. How can I register my new station?
  9. What antennas should I have?
  10. Where should I place the antennas?
  11. How do I check for noise and why should I?
  12. How do I hunt for noise sources?
  13. Should I use the optional low-pass filters?
  14. How do I solder the low-pass filters?
  15. What are the most important settings in the system interface?
  16. What are these funny wiggles before/ after my signals?
  17. ….
