Practical Wireless is a unique magazine that has been in continuous publication since 1932. Originally, PW – as it’s known to its friends and readers worldwide – started off as a magazine that dealt with the more practical side of wireless construction for general enthusiasts. However, since 1980, the magazine has aimed itself specifically at the Radio Amateur.

Practical Wireless has always been a ‘doing’ magazine with the accent on the practical, constructional side of Amateur Radio. Renowned for providing good homebrew projects, PW gives full assembly instructions for all types of old and new ideas ranging from the absolute beginner projects in our series called ‘Radio Basics’ to projects for the more advanced Radio Amateur, such as in our series: Carrying On The Practical Way.

Practical Wireless reflects modern trends by regularly featuring reviews of the latest radios and test equipment. It also covers other aspects such as computers in radio communications and ancillaries via reviews and specific features

   Great to have a digital version Reviewed Thursday, June 7, 2018
Really good to have this on Pocketmags, and a week or more earlier than the print version.

I particularly like the style of writing which is very accessible but not too technical.

I notice they have recently started looking at some newer technologies like Network Radios, a new strand of the Amateur hobby which is proving really interesting to enthusiasts from all backgrounds.

Well done PW for keeping on the cutting edge of the Ham hobby, in so many ways!
   Practically Brilliant! Reviewed Thursday, June 7, 2018 SUBSCRIBER
Always a great yet gentle and easy read.

Not afraid to explore new technologies in the hobby (like Network Radios, as one example) and full of useful stuff from a great set of contributors.

What's not to like?
   Great Magazine Reviewed Wednesday, November 29, 2017 SUBSCRIBER
