TX Factor

Amateur Radio Revealed

our shows

TX Factor is a series of high definition TV shows covering all aspects of the hobby of amateur radio - a professionally produced programme, now into its fourth year.

episode 17 live!

TX Factor goes digital as Mike Marsh gives Bob McCreadie an introduction to operating on DMR, Yaesu Fusion and D Star. In part one of the series, they take a trip to a local farm to see how an amateur has set up his own Fusion Gateway.

Ever wonder why QSL cards take a long time to complete their journey? Bob finds out what we can do to help speed up the process.

Pete visits Norwich to spend a day with the Norfolk Amateur Radio Club at their annual field day event, Radio Active.
