Welcome to our latest episode!
In The Groove - TX date 6th July 2019
In episode 23 of TX factor we explore the process of music audio mastering at Mike Marsh G1IAR’s studio in south Devon. Mike shows us how the latest TX Factor theme tune was mixed and mastered, and demonstrates the process of cutting the audio onto vinyl disc - such nostalgia!
And if that fails to impress, Nick Bennett 2E0FGQ visits the National Radio Centre at Bletchley Park where Noel Matthews G8GTZ and Graham Shirville G3VZV demonstrate how set up and operate over the new geostationary satellite, Oscar 100. Plus, Bob McCreadie G0FGX visits the folks at Icom UK with a full review of Icom's long-awaited VHF / UHF all-mode transceiver the IC-9700.

Our back catalog of shows are all available to watch here on the website or on our Youtube channel
To help generate some extra revenue to fund future production of TX Factor shows, we have made our first seven episodes available as pay-per-view shows (PPV). We’re asking our loyal viewers to pay a nominal fee to enable them to stream or download and keep the early shows which are all commercial- and sponsorship-free. We hope you’ll be able to spend half the cost of a flat white in order to watch again some of these earlier shows which still remain valuable resources in the world of amateur radio. And remember, every penny goes towards the cost of maintaining the PPV platform, and helping to fund future episodes. Thank you!
