The UK governing Amateur / Ham Radio body - RSGB, has launched a new amateur radio promotional video to attract new participants to the hobby.
The video was produced in conjunction with TX Factor and has produced lots of positive comment since it was first shown publicly at the RSGB Convention.
One person commented "the video is really good, hardly an oldie to be seen !!"
The amateur satellite service feature prominently in the video, Peter Goodhall 2E0SQL is shown working the amateur satellites and astronaut Doug Wheelock KF5BOC puts in an appearance from on-board the International Space Station.
Among those spotted in the video were amateurs from the Silcoates School, Camb Hams and Essex Ham.
