Foxhunt color thumbOn Thursday 16th June, Dave M6MJV and I G0MCV took part in a direction finding night, 7.30 – 9.30 we were the fox.

We found a great hiding place and on the dot of 7.30 pm we started transmitting one minute in every 5, talking a load of rubbish (a lot of people would say I talk that any way) it was raining heavily and the car windows were steaming up so we were getting some funny looks!

TX Factor is a series of high definition TV shows covering all aspects of the hobby of amateur radio, the latest episode is below.

TX Factor episode 11 is now live. In this special edition, we follow the progress of a Devon School in their attempt to be one of the ten lucky UK schools to link up with Tim Peake aboard the International Space Station. We go behind the scenes with the ARISS team to meet the members and see the technology that helped to make the UK schools' link-ups such a great success.
