RadCom January 2016 – Essex Amateurs

RSGB LogoThe January 2016 edition of RadCom, the RSGB’s monthly magazine, is due to be delivered in the next couple of days – and it’s all change. The New Year sees a new look at Radcom – We take a quick look at what’s covered in the news section, plus see which Essex amateur radio activities feature in the magazine.

If you want to get a sneak peek before RadCom’s printed version arrives, a PDF of the news section and the Around Your Region section is available on our site – See: RSGB Around Your Region PDFs.

New-look Radcom

The new year will see some changes to Radcom, including colour-coding for the various sections, and in response to a recent survey, more on antennas, reviews and construction. To allow space for extra content, RSGB Matters will be reduced, and Around Your Region will be trimmed to a maximum of six pages.

In the main news section of the next Radcom: WRC 2015, Tim Peake, K for Kernow, plus a bid for the UK to host YOTA 2017.

Also worthy of note – the new RSGB Youth Video, 21st Century Hobby, which features a number of Essex Hams including our Kelly M6KFA, is being used around the world, including Botswana and Israel. Nice one.


Around Your Region:

Here’s a quick look at what gets a mention in January 2016 “Around Your Region”:

Around Your Region (Region 12) from Radcom Jan 2016

If you want to read the articles in full, without having to wait for your copy of RadCom to pop through your letterbox, take a look in the Essex Ham RadCom Club Newsletters section for a PDF version of the ‘Around Your Region’ section.
