Editorial
It is indeed sad that there should be those amongst us who, instead of helping the war effort, are wrangling and wire-pulling with a view to gaining for themselves a monopoly of·the radio repair business. We refer, of course, to the proposed scheme to allow component parts to be sold only to registered radio repairmen. Now is the time for every radio man, whether professional technician or boy novice, to do everything possible to keep radio sets in good operating condition. If the radio repair men like to get together to form a trade union, the move will be welcome. If the lofty ideals usually mentioned at the time of application for registration of such a union are kept in mind the radio repairmen will have ample scope for organisation without attempting to arrange a ban on the sale of components, or in any other way interfere with the freedom of any individual to repair his own set if he happens to have the necessary technical knowledge. It is not a heck of a long time since there wasn't a radio repairman in the whole of Australia. Anybody who wonted to have a radio set in those days had to build themselves a crystal set. Since then thousands of amateurs have built their own sets. These thousands are still with us, and only a small percentage are actively employed as radio repairmen. They have the knowledge necessary to cut their spare time to "keep 'em listening". It is ridiculous to suggest that they be denied the necessary parts.
