GQRP Club and SPRAT magazine

Several times in the past I have said that, if all other magazines had to be cancelled I’d keep GQRP Club’s SPRAT magazine. This small format magazine comes out quarterly and is excellent value for money. You don’t get the endless adverts by the few remaining national radio companies in the UK, just a few adverts from companies selling bits.  Every quarter there are articles showing things to build or ideas on which to base your own projects.

SPRAT really is first class and all produced by unpaid volunteers who love our hobby. As much as I enjoy browsing PW and RadCom, I look forward to getting SPRAT far more.
