  • Will Those Signals Get Through?
    There's a long held belief held by many, that outdoor antennas perform better then indoor ones. Here, Rod Watson G0MKG sets about determining whether there is any grounding of this, due to enclosure of the antenna by the building. Rod looks at the approximate measurement of radio wave attenuation through materials that we may
    use in our projects.

  • Hands On With Hardy - SoftRock Transceiver Part 2
    As an experienced constructor of projects based on once contemporary 'pin in hole' based component packages, Clive is a relative newcomer to surface mount devices. The SoftRock transceiver offers a mixture of both technologies and therefore an ideal opportunity to push the limits. You too, can tackle this type of project, see how Clive shows you how to go about it.
  • Mode-A-Month Part 1
    In preparation for our look at different transmission modes employed on the radio bands that MM readers can hear, Clive sets about familiarising himself with a handy SDR tool, the RF Space SDR-IQ.
  • Perseus Update
    In the April issue, JackWeber brought us an extensive look at the exciting new Perseus SDR from Italian manufacturer Microtelecom. As the crux of Software Defined Radios is the software that processes the IQ data delivered by the hardware, Jack now brings us a look at the first official release of that all important aspect.
