Updating the Amateur Radio Licence

A consultation paper entitled Updating the Amateur Radio Licence (35-page, 264KB PDF) has now been issued, and all amateurs are encouraged to read it carefully and respond to Ofcom by 20 October.

No-Code in 1934?

As a result of sending out a column (nearly) every month to about 350 ham radio club newsletter editors, I get copies of many newsletters from around the country. The following appeared in the August 2014 issue of the Merrymeeting Amateur Radio Association (MARA) Squelch Tales. It originally appeared in the January 1934 issue of the magazine Short Wave Radio. PDFs of Short Wave Radio as well as many more magazines from the early days of radio can be found on the American Radio History website.
