Older HPR shows on

This month 100 additional shows in the range 1-870 have been uploaded.

Since we don't want to upload shows without summaries or tags the old shows and tag and summary projects are now tied together. So we will be all the more welcoming of tag and summary updates submitted as described on the summary page.

Tags and Summaries

Thanks to the following contributors for sending in updates in the past month:
Archer72, Dave Morriss

Over the period tags and/or summaries have been added to 82 shows which were without them.

There are now 295 shows which need a summary and/or tags.

If you would like to contribute to the tag/summary project visit the summary page at and follow the instructions there.

A comment on your comment about my comment


In my comment on the Terminal Journey part 1 I wrote that I had to split my comment because I got an error when I tried to send it in one piece.

Your reply in this here installment was that postings are limited in length. But that is *not* the problem I had. Yes, I did reach the limit, and I could type no farther. So I fixed my sentences to shorten the post by a little bit and then clicked on Send. But I got an actual error page. So I cut my text in half and then it submitted just fine. I suspect a bug in the form checker or even the backend.

I do realise there is enough stuff in my head for several shows. I’m working on that concept. :)

Congrats on joining the Ham community!

Thank you for your positive feedback, and welcome to the Ham Radio community. Looking forward to your podcasts about it, and now I may need to do some myself.

Errors in comments

There is a limit on the about of text you can put in this box - endorsed by the maxlength="2000" in HTML.

There is also a limit that triggers error "cd57ab4d7b77a131ed3deb441bd93dcd" when the server sees that the string length is greater than 2000.

You would think that they would be the same, but they are not due to the amount of data required to encode characters. maxlength counts the number of characters, while strlen() is actual data passed. So if you include a "Smart Quote" it takes double the space of a normal quote.

$ echo '"' > double-quote.txt $ echo '“' > double-curley-quote.txt

$ ls -altr double-curley-quote.txt double-quote.txt | awk '{print $NF, $5}' double-quote.txt 2 double-curley-quote.txt 4 -rw-rw-r--. 1 ken ken 4 Jul 6 15:23 double-curley-quote.txt -rw-rw-r--. 1 ken ken 2 Jul 6 15:23 double-quote.txt

For a good overview on why this is please see "Characters, Symbols and the Unicode Miracle - Computerphile" by Tom Scott on
