couv HrM02-PETITEEditorial and Contents

This issue was produced on the same principle as the first issue: a plain, basic translation of the French ‘Radioamateur Magazine’ N°12.

If this second issue was published, it is because you liked the first issue and we received many comments after publishing N°1.

All your feedback encouraged us to continue, although we did get some negative comments about the translation. This issue won’t be any better (HI!), but remains FREE. You’ll have to pay for the third issue, though, when Mark, F6JSZ, ex-editor of the French CQ Magazine between 1995 and 2000, takes the reins.

Based on Mark’s experience, we’ll have translated articles from the French magazine, but also exclusive papers from anglophone hams around the world. The new version of your ham radio e-paper aims to be a combination of all ham radio activities, from kit-building to contesting, from QRP to amplifiers, from DX’ing to VHF, etc.

Despite the general satisfaction and numerous positive comments we received, we’ll publish the magazine during a 3-month trial period. We’ll focus on what you, the reader, would like to see, and then decide to continue the adventure or not.

If the magazine reflects what you want to see, if we gather enough readers, we will then continue the project. It all depends on us, providing you with  the content you would like to see, but also on you, to invest in the idea. For us, a ham magazine is a link between its readers and the editorial staff.

Mark and I have been working in the amateur radio press business for almost 16 years, and despite the financial crisis and bad propagation conditions, we thought it was the good time to launch something new. We’ll talk about this further on in 3 months… Until then, please don’t hesitate to send any information to Mark for publishing: club news, DX news, expedition reports, technical articles, questions, etc., at his e-mail address:

Why HamRadio Magazine is born ?
For 4 years now, with Ondes Magazine and now with Radioamateur Magazine, many of you ask an English version of our journals. Not always easy to consider in its « paper » traditional version, it is within our reach « digital PDF», it’s just a lot of time to devote to it but when the enthusiasm is there… On this first english issue distributed for free you’ll be more than 1500 subscribers to receive it.
For all those of your amateur radio friends who want read it, they just go at the top or bottom of this page. You’ll find an area where you just insert the email address and click button.

In the minutes that follow you will receive an email telling you the link, your username and password to download this issue for free once.

Supported by strong request we would express the wish for all your indulgence for spelling and grammar. We will take appropriate action to improve over the next issues.
For the moment, accept all our apologises on perhaps too often an approximative writting. This magazine in English come from the French version, Radioamateur Magazine, now in its eleventh issue. The basic idea is to take items from the French issue and adapted to the English version. Thus was born the number 1 from number 11 of Radioamateur Magazine. However, nothing prevents us from publishing articles from the international amateur radio community, equipment review, technical articles, tips and tricks, news and DX from your country.
Christian F8CRM, Editor and Philippe F1FYY, Publisher
