An organisation in Germany has donated (about 50 kg) of RG58 antenna cable. This grade of cable is suitable for use in connecting transmitters to antennae for FM broadcasting (~100 MHz). The cable is lying in Hamburg.

Any public service organisation that can make good use of this quantity of cable may contact me. The cable is free, but arrangements will have to be made to lift it from Hamburg, Germany.

Guidelines for Reporting on Violence Against Women

women, suggesting the use of non-judgmental language and exercising
restraint in publication of graphic details. The word "victim" is overused
and "survivor" might be a more appropriate term, according to the

Journalists are also encouraged to inform the public of the bigger picture
of violence against women by including statistics, social background
information and expert opinion in their work.
