   Worth reading every month Reviewed 09 April 2019
I have read PW every month for years.
It keeps me up to date as to what is happening in amateur radio.
Don g3xtt the Editor is happy to include all aspects of the hobby old and new.
   Great to have a digital version Reviewed 07 June 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 07 June 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 29 November 2017 SUBSCRIBER
