  Ham Radio & DX We have had nothing but difficulties with many publications related to amateur radio and DXing. It appears that most of the organizations related to these fields do not want their activities more broadly known and recognized. To avoid legal issues and ongoing irritations, we will be gradually removing many publications related to ham radio, SWL and DXing.
Jan 23 RadCon
We are sorry to report that the Radio Society of Great Britain has ordered the removal of all of its publications, calling them "pirated".

This site believes that in an era of reduced interest in radio hobbies such as amateur radio, DX listening and construction projects, that broadening the exposure of publications from the past can encourage new interests.
Particularly, the RSGB publications were unfamiliar to many in "the rest of the world" and they contained information that goes beyond amateur radio in areas such as developing technologies.

It's interesting to note that we have only received a few removal requests in the nearly 20 years that this site has existed; all have been in the area of amateur radio and DXing... declining hobbies that desperately need wider exposure going into the future.

Most unfortunately, there is no longer the ability to search for words, phrases and terms in the entire range of RSGB publications.
