Nothing to do with the election, or Brexit – you’ll be pleased to hear! TX Factor episode 25 is now live at www.txfactor.co.uk. We look at more new and innovative AR products from this year’s UK Hamfest, including a potted history of the ever-popular and much revered range of transceivers and kits from Electraft with co-founder Eric Swartz WA6HHQ.
In this modern era of connectivity, we take the ever-present Internet for granted; it’s always there and continues to deliver our data from A to B without issue. But what would happen if that vital link failed? We visit Southampton and Portsmouth on the UK’s south coast to see how two city councils, assisted by a group of dedicated amateurs, plan to maintain their communications infrastructure via radio links alone, should the Internet go down.
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a radio active New year from all at TX Factor.
