The policy with RadCom is almost the same, except we would use ohms plural.
Also the units are close against the number, eg 7.5W. Abbreviations are in
capitals, with no full points between, eg RMS or SWR. Other UK magazines do
things differently. Short Wave Magazine would say s.w.r. - so there are no
country-wide rules.

I have also noticed that several Continental magazines now write 5R1 for 5.1
ohms and 75R for 75 ohms
