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 28 is now live.
It’s been over a year since our last episode was released so we’re trying to make up for lost time by releasing show number 28 almost eight years after our first show back in February of 2014. Where have the years gone?!
In this show, Bob and Mike get to grips with constructing a digital voice modem using an MMDVM module kit and Raspberry Pi Zero, and Bob reviews the long-awaited ID-52 5W hand-held transceiver from Icom. As always there’s a chance to win a bundle of books from the RSGB in our free-to-enter draw. Don’t forget we also provide a podcast of the GB2RS news every week. Details of how to download or subscribe are on our website: http://www.txfactor.co.uk
