SAMBA Mosquito Fleet Listening Guide (PDF: Adobe Acrobat Reader required)
Useful to both listeners and broadcasters, this was the manifesto of the event.

A beautifully-designed and very comprehensive technical primer into FM broadcasting. The closest thing to a "field manual" that exists - WELL worth the download. MAD props to Justin Disruption for all the hard work.
