Indeed. Another casualty this week is the recently relaunched 
Television magazine. An excellent example of a mag which at one time 
was profitable with a large market but with the decline in the 
television repair trade, the disappearance of amateur construction and 
the advent of internet forums to exchange fault ideas real time meant 
that there was no place left for it. Relaunched in January with great 
promises, it lasted just six months with the editorial team going into 

I would hope RadCom does not follow a similar fate, at least it is a 
society magazine with a guaranteed subscriber base. But similar things 
can be learned. With the internet covering day to day news the mag 
content must change to suit.

It is indeed strange that there is little coverage of amateur 
satellites in RadCom. I remember some years ago the society made a 
donation to the Oscar 10 project which you would think showed some 
committment. But it is probably more about getting a regular 
contributor to produce a monthly page, which must be the responsibility 

of Amsat UK.
