TX Factor, the UK’s first TV show dedicated entirely to amateur radio has certainly taken off. Episode 1 which launched back in February has seen over 22,300 downloads and the latest release has been viewed more than 7,400 times in the past 14 days. We’re extremely grateful to the amateur radio world for helping to propagate the news of this TV show and to help us achieve a large and appreciative audience. It’s made it all worthwhile!
If you’ve not yet watched an episode, then head over to www.txfactor.co.uk to see what’s on offer.
We’re always on the lookout for ideas for future show topics, so do let us know of any ideas we could consider for future inclusion.
Don’t forget to subscribe to our emailing list or YouTube channel to make sure you get notification of each new episode. Talking of which, episode 3 will be available in mid-May. The show features the famous Military Wireless Museum in Kidderminster with curator Ben Knock G4BXD and the king of kite aerials Roger Stafford G4ROJ. Mike Marsh visits the Exeter Radio and Electronics Rally and Bob takes a look at the new offering from FlexRadio Systems.
We’re currently building up a resource library of extracts from past shows which may be of interest to those who haven’t managed to watch an entire episode.
And if you can’t wait for the next episode, there is now TX Talk, a section of the web site where regular audio features on all aspects of amateur radio are uploaded. Right now, there’s an exclusive interview with FUNcube Project Manager Jim Heck talking with Bob McCreadie about the prospective changes to the FUNcube satellite’s transponder availability.
