TX Factor is a series of high definition TV shows covering all aspects of the hobby of amateur radio, the latest episode is below.

TX Factor episode 12 is now live. Not one, but two rig reviews: the Sun Expert Electronics Transceiver MB1 and the elusive Icom IC-7300 are comprehensively analysed.

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.
