  • Welcome to the latest edition from Lee, G4EJB, RadCom Basics editor
    In this edition, having fun with the hobby—tea and 1kV don’t mix—and are you making full use of the RSGB? I take another look at the RSGB Members Handbook and find the EMC section comes in very useful!
  • An introduction to 6m
    The six metre band (50MHz) has a very loyal following around the world. But why?
  • Radio rallies
    If you are new to the hobby, you may have seen Rallies and Events in RadCom or found the listings on the RSGB website and wondered what are these all about?
  • The counterpoise
    You may have come across the terms ground plane or radials, but might not have heard the word counterpoise—nevertheless, a counterpoise can be a useful weapon in our antenna armoury—so let’s take a closer look.
  • Index of RadCom Basics articles: editions 1 to 15
