A peek behind the Curtain

On Friday, club members were treated to an interesting talk at the shack at the Pyewipe Inn by Phil, G8KLC.

The curtain in question was (of course) the Iron Curtain and Phil treated us to various anecdotes relating to his business trips in the former DDR. A fascinating reminder of how different life was, not so long ago, for people living under a communist regime. The picture shows Checkpoint Charlie as it was in 1961 and is credited to the CIA.
