How do I view/read Kabinews?

In each case, the document would be in PDF format. This is platform independent document transmission software that requires a freeware program, such as Acrobat Reader, to read. You could either read the document and view the pictures from a conventional computer screen, or print it out and read it as anyone would read the standard paper version.

How would the print quality and pictures compare with the printed copy?

Resolution is very good when viewed on a computer screen and the text would be easier to see for those with impaired sight. You may also print out sections for your personal use only. This is particularly useful for compiling the many technical articles when the pictures and diagrams can be printed out to any useful size.

When would I receive Kabinews?

It would be sent to you via email on a bi-monthly basis on the same day as a UK member would receive their paper copy. For USA and non-European members, this would be many days earlier than the current paper based distribution.

How would new members join as an Internet Member

When does the membership year start and end?

All memberships fall due for renewal on 01 January each year. You can join at any time before September and receive the whole year of back issues in downloadable format. Join after September and you will enjoy 15 months of Membership before the next renewal comes.

What about Internet distribution of back-issues of Kabinews?

Is Kabinews available as an extra high resolution version?
