In conjunction with Unique Radio, we have launched new thrice weekly USB shortwave transmissions in Australia on 5,035kHz (or 3,210kHz when interference levels are high). Daily programme schedule and frequency details on our 'Programmes' page and in the new issue of Radio News. If you're in Australia or New Zealand, do check out the transmissions and let us know. eQSL cards for reception reports.

Cables. Things that connect things to other things. We use kilometres of 'em, and maybe you do, too. If you're a musician looking for some decent connections, you could take a look at the newly-launched Scottish company The Music Cable Company. We're giving them an unsolicited plug because they have kindly said some kice things about us on the News page of their website!
