New EPUB edition

RadCom Plus is now available in two formats.

  • The flip format that was used for the first edition
  • An additional e-publication (EPUB) format intended to improve the reader experience and which allows the supplement to be downloaded and read offline

If you are already familiar with the EPUB format, you can download this edition by following this link, or by clicking the EPUB edition logo next to the cover picture.

If you haven’t used EPUB files before, we recommend you read the advice below.

The principle advantage of EPUB is the reflowable content.

This means that text can be resized and the display will optimise itself so that the text continues to fall only on the visible area making for a pleasant reading experience.

The EPUB format can easily be read on Apple devices and there are a large number of reader options on every platform including Android, Windows, Linux, etc.

This version is not intended for use on a Kindle but can be imported via an Amazon interface.

The RSGB recommends the following readers, but any suitable reader the user may have already will suffice.

Additionally, for Firefox users

Click Add to Firefox button and follow the instructions.

Once the plugin is installed, you can open any EPUB file in Firefox without having to download it first or open a special application.
