Radcom November 2017 edition on line

RSGB LogoFor members of the Worksop Amateur Radio Society, who are not yet RSGB Members. The RSGB have for some time now been putting copies of their Magazine “RadCom” on line available for members to access.

This is proving useful if you are like me and once I have read a magazine, I normally leave them at the Doctors / Dentists / Hospital, because they have got to be better than those old copies of Peoples Friend or Take a Break, I normally find on Display.

I have also taken to adding a sticker to the back page so that if interested a reader is directed to our club here in Worksop.

It has also saved me scanning in articles I was particularly interested in.
