Lo-Key magazine looks at the war years

Author : Jim Linton - VK3PC

The March issue of Lo-Key, the journal of the VK QRP Club and CW Operators' QRP Club, contains an interesting article on ‘Amateur Radio activity during WWII’. The re-printed article retraces the restrictions imposed during that global conflict, and the secret role of some radio amateurs.

It was a time when Amateur Radio could be involved in espionage, and also the skills of radio amateurs played a vital part in both defence and development. The original illustrated article appeared in the WIA journal Amateur Radio for August 2015, as part of the ANZAC 100 program.

The A5-sized publication Lo-Key is sent to all members of the VK QRP Club, and contains gear you can build, some notes about operating experiences and hints - and covers all modes.
