IN THIS ISSUE

A review-bumper-issue, coupled with authoritative writing on all aspects and new trends in radio, by our team of expert journalists. Highlights this month include extra-large product reviews and news sections, and the first instalment in a long-awaited two-part series on the history, politics and art of QSL cars. Do not miss our article on the hobby of medium wave DXing, and on one very special lady, who has owned and operated a plethora of radio scanners in her life. One of the highlights this month is our revamped and up-to-date rallies and radio events listing, back now after the lockdowns. For radio history buffs, there are exciting contributions about vintage radio and TV equipment, the work of one of the best-known radio pioneers, and a maritime disaster that still looms large in the nation’s memory.
