Amateur Radio Revealed

our shows

TX Factor is a series of high definition TV shows covering all aspects of the hobby of amateur radio - a professionally produced programme, now into its fourth year.

episode 13 on-air!

Bob gets to weigh up the latest offering of digital transceivers with Gary from ML&S.

We chat about the weather with two experts who always look on the bright side. Jim Bacon and Steve Nichols explain how we can work with the prevailing conditions to maximise our chances of good DX.

And Bob realises a boyhood dream by reliving the heady days of pirate radio on the UK’s high seas.

Also in this show, Bob teaches Mike a thing or two about amateur satellite operating, and our free-to-enter-draw is back with a chance to win a copy of the Getting Started with Amateur Satellites book featured in the item.
