Welcome to our latest episode!
We’re unlocked! - TX date 2nd December 2020
Another post-lockdown special? - Indeed! And we hope you are safe and well and looking forward to some TX Factor action. In this final show of 2020, we visit the home of a well-known and long-established amateur radio aficionado Don Field G3XTT. A year ago Don moved to a new QTH near Wells in Somerset, and back in March we visited him to find out how he’s settled in.
Bob and Mike get to grips with setting up an OpenSpot Gateway for mobile use.
And, we hear from RSGB General Manager Steve Thomas M1ACB on the amazing media response to this summer’s amateur radio revival during the lockdown period. All this and a free-to-enter draw!

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!
