IN THIS ISSUE

Two of our articles this month home in on the subject of low-frequency radio. Whereas Tim Kirby introduces the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) in the Netherlands and the UK, Scott Caldwell brings us a portrait of the man behind the transmitter at SAQ Grimeton in Sweden. SAQ still transmits a few times a year and is always eagerly monitored by radio enthusiasts.

In our other features and columns this month, you can learn about weather observation ships, as well as consult the most recent aviation and short wave frequencies tables, listening recommendations for international radio and events news. Stay up-to-date with our exclusive content on the latest in digital and analogue, linear- and podcast- radio and enjoy our look back at the first transmission of BBC TV. Last but not least, take a look at our larger-than-normal pre-Christmas portion of News and Products, and book reviews
