Section 19 please
Welcome! I'll put you in for 19. Please do the 1-minute test first, to ensure your settings (bit rate, volume, etc.) are all OK before embarking on this longer recording. :)

How would you like to be credited in the catalog? There are places for a catalog name (some use a nickname or forum name, some their real name) and a link to a personal web site or blog, if you have one. I recommend using whatever name you say (if any) when you say, "recorded by [your name]" as that's how listeners will look for you. (Keep in mind that prospective employers, classmates, enemies, etc. can also find you using the catalog name, so be cautious if privacy might be an issue.)

I wonder why no one claimed chapter 3?
odd, I think.

I'd like to do that please.

oh
oh dear

Do I have freedom to translate those tables into something listenable?

Perhaps something along the lines of citing the info, source, and definition tables in one row?

That's probably why no one claimed it! :lol:

I'm not sure what you mean by "citing the info, source, and definition tables in one row", but if you mean substituting full words for the abbreviations, then yes - I'm OK with that.

And I hope it goes without saying that you do not need to read the picture captions on those several pages of pictures. :)

Welcome! If it's OK with you, I'll put you in for 13 to start with, and when that's submitted, you can claim 14 and 15. That way there isn't so much pressure to get all 3 sections done quickly. :)

So I imported the table into a spreadsheet.
lol
Then I cross-referenced the data source transponder names with their description table.
haha
Then I replaced all the acronyms and abbreviations with their definitions from the definition table.
hehe
Then I recorded everything and while doing the final editing on the last few rows I realized that the spreadsheet had rounded the mission-time seconds to two decimal places.
hoho
I also cheated a little.

If you have any corrections please forward those requests to Dr. K at the Massachusetts Mental Rehabilitation Center of Plymouth County.

Section 3 PL OK!

I admit I didn't follow along with the text and note any anomalies. :roll: Supreme effort, supreme success! You didn't even sound bored!
