| November 24, 2022

We are pleased to announce the November 2022 edition of RadCom Basics is now available on the RSGB website

In this edition, Jonathan Constable, AC9PG provides all of us with some excellent ways to improve CW speed inside and outside of contests, along with a really good contest challenge.

Also in this edition;

  • Introduction to SDR software on a Raspberry Pi-4 – Part 2
    In part two, Tony Molloy, M6CIH shows us how to use two different SDR programs with step-by-step examples to provide that successful SDR listening experience on a Pi-4
  • Simple antenna performance comparison – Part 1
    Is my antenna really working as well as I thought it would? A comparison of the stealth W3EDP antenna with an inverted-V dipole antenna by Lee, G4EJB. In part one, it’s a real garden and shed activity including building a simple switching arrangement
  • Basic fault-finding – Part 2
    Building on the simple techniques in part one, Lee, G4EJB applies those methods to real examples and then looks at simple circuit testing, using as little maths as possible
  • How the RSGB represents us and the hobby
    There is so much we can easily take for granted but I hope with the assistance of Murray Niman, G6JYB we give you an insight into the work done to fight our corner in the radio spectrum and the pressures on it – do not underestimate it!
