Our Publications

THG publishes four A4 sized Journals each year, packed with news and articles that are written by our members, for our members.


A growing number of THG members have joined CNet - this is a telephone network that uses an Asterisk Voice Over IP (VOIP) system and connects people up all over the world through their broadband connections.  Members have successfully connected old exchanges and equipment to the network, and in the UK we operate using the old STD codes.  See
