Our new team member Pete Sipple looks forward to Youngsters On The Air 2017 and chats to some key players at this summer’s UK event. Pete finds time to take an eager look at the new dual-band handie offering from Kenwood - the TH-D74E with D-STAR.

Bob chats to our friend Bob Inderbitzen from the ARRL about the League’s worldwide presence and Mike investigates two clever devices from SOTABeams that will help to improve the filtering of your FT-817 and check the efficiency of your HF antenna respectively.
