Hi! I'm MC, I've been here all along but was waiting for Kristine to respond to the DPL offer. I'm going to assume she'll accept and I've entered you, Linny, as DPL.

Kristine, I apologise if I've stepped on your toes.

Thank you, Bev. I hadn’t noticed that Kristine wasn’t the MC on this one. :oops:

:) No problem. I took this on just before Kristine was re-admined. She is MC of all her BC projects after this.

Sorry, I didn't realize Section 23 had been previously spoken for, I'll try something else.

I'd like to claim Sections 24 and 25 please, the African station. I travelled to some parts of South Africa including the south coast there recently, so it will be particularly interesting to me.
24 and 25 are yours, thanks!
Keep your mind here and now, where it belongs.

That makes us fully claimed, but there might be some orphans coming, so we'll stay in this forum for a few days.

Linny, million thanks for PLing and keeping an eye on things here! :9:

Michael,
Nice job on the recording! There are a couple of little fixes and then I’ve recommended some post production items; these are optional.

0:37 missing chapter title - Chapter XI, Round the World on a Man-of-War continued, From the Horn to Halifax, Part 2

Please extend ending silence to ~5 seconds. The recording is at ~3 seconds and that has a risk of being cut off during playback.

Optional:
Your overall volume is ok however there are parts which are very difficult to hear without changing the volume. Example ~10:00, ~ 24:00. You might consider a bit of compression and then amplification. If you are using Audacity here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fKYYj6HMZU

The recording could also benefit from some noise cleaning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzVxubRO4gI

Ruth, I have only just discovered that I made a mistake and have (stupidly) recorded this section thinking it was one of the 2 I claimed.
Am just wondering, if you haven't recorded it already, could I swap it with you? Or, as there is still a section unassigned, would you be averse to taking that one instead? Quite understand of course if you say no or have already done it. Silly of me.
regards
Jane Bennett
