SOME ITEMS BROADCAST DURING 1992

INTERVIEWS
by Andrew Rennie

Most interviews were recorded stereophonicly with the intention they be heard on home hi-fidelity stereophonic radio equipment. We recommend you listen to these downloadable audio files in this way. If you choose to listen with headphone or earbuds you may find the left-ear / right-ear effect unpleasant.

Note: The broadcast edit of this discussion has been erased. The discussion was never intended for broadcast. It was recorded on a small portable tape recorder as a note taker in preparation of an article published in Space Association News (SpAN 45, 1988 June). Most of this recording is not up to broadcast standard, and is offered here for those patient listeners with an interest in the deveopment of remote sensing in New Zealand in the mid-1980s.
