The February issue of the UK magazine Radiouser features a 5 page article on the AMSAT-UK FUNcube Dongle (FCD) VHF/UHF Software Defined Radio written by Mike Richards G4WNC.
For the review amateur radio dealer Martin Lynch & Sons loaned a FCD to Mike who ended up buying one for himself!
Other articles in the February issue include Pat Carty’s ‘Military Matters’ column, DXTV and NDB DXing. In the ‘Sky High’ column Godfrey Manning G4GLM highlights the problems that wind farms cause to Radar and questions the need for the extensive restrictions on UK airspace to be imposed during July and August.
Postal copies of Radiouser can be purchased direct from the publisher using a Debit or Credit card by ringing +44 (0)1202 659910 (Monday – Thursday, 8.30am – 4.00pm) – the cost is the same because there is no postage to pay.
