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
