TX Factor 26 – a bumper episode

| August 14, 2020

Running slightly behind schedule—because of the COVID-19 pandemic—a bumper summer edition of TX Factor is now available.

Episode 26 is packed full of pre-lockdown features including a very relaxed tea and biscuits interview with Tim Kirby, GW4VXE, as he speaks about his big passion for VHF and UHF operating.

Bob, G0FGX, and Mike, G1IAR, take the lid off Bob’s Icom IC-7300 and fit a Radio Analog PTRX-7300 RF interface module.

Coupled with an inexpensive SDR receiver like the SDR Play RSP1A and your computer, this board gives you a proper panadapter display so you can use your mouse to click and pounce on the signals you want to hear.

Bob also gets his hands on one of the very first Icom IC-705 all-mode QRP SDR transceivers to arrive in the UK and gives a comprehensive review of all its wondrous capabilities.

TX Factor is viewable on all devices, from smartphones to smart TVs, and is available at txfactor.co.uk or on YouTube.

TX Factor is sponsored by the RSGB and Martin Lynch & Sons.
