Amateur Radio Revealed
We’re back on the air!
TX Factor is a series of high-definition TV shows covering all aspects of the hobby of amateur radio - a professionally produced programme,
now celebrating its seventh year.
Our programmes are sponsored by
The Radio Society of Great Britain - advancing amateur radio since 1913
and Martin Lynch & Sons - the world’s favourite ham store.
Welcome to our latest episode!
We’re back! - TX date 11th August 2020
A post-lockdown special - well, not really! Just a bumper edition of TX Factor that was planned for March 2020, but due to the Covid-19 restrictions never quite happened! We hope you are all safe and well, and enjoying the summer opportunities for amateur radio despite the various restrictions upon us.
Back in February we dropped in for tea and biscuits at the new(ish) QTH of Tim Kirby GW4VXE to learn more about his passion for all things VHF / UHF. Also in February, Bob and Mike fitted a Radio Analog PTRX-7300 RF interface module into Bob’s beloved IC-7300, and, yes, can it be possibly true . . . bang up-to-date, Bob reviews one of the first Icom IC-705 SDR QRP all-mode transceivers in the country. We hope you enjoy the show!

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!
