There is an article in here for Remco, Paul and myself. It is apparently this is published with permission from another publication but that publication does not have the rights to give such permission. Can you please either seek permission from the authors of delete the article?

The article first appeared in DKARS, which is another free electronic publication covering the wider field of amateur radio.
Peter the DKARS secretary was asked by Ian on behalf of CQ-DATV for permission to publish the article
Peter then checked with Remco the author and confirmed that it was OK for CQ-DATV to to reproduce the DKARS article

I have no idea what happens in the DKARS and how there rights work, but that is where the article was first published and they were happy for CQ-DATV to reproduce the article.

Ian the CQ-DATV editor is not on this forum but you can reach him at editor@cqdatv.mobi

Hope this helps

I am the lead author although Remco did all the writing. The heading says with permission from the magazine, who can't give that. If Remco was asked, it should have said that.

The article itself is on Paul's blog, and CQTV and Oscar news published an updated version. Ian didn't ask either of us. Had he done that he would have found there has been progress since then. Not only an alternative patch with a horn for longer dishes but also a better dielectric lens design from Willi that improves the 10 GHz performance over the one in the article. So you lost an opportunity to print someone new rather than a copy of an article itself copied from the internet.

I see this copying of internet material a lot now, there's not necessarily anything wrong with this but maybe you should call the magazine or part of it a digest.
