That might be with finding radio stations a long way away to listen to, having family fun using licence-free radios that are cheaply available, or getting really into it with amateur radio.

There will be simple explanations of the basic technology behind radio, with some experiments you can do yourself, including the ever popular crystal set (no batteries, built with toilet rolls, foil and wire!) through to a cheap software defined radio receiver that uses the power of your computer.

For those already into amateur radio as a hobby there’s more great resources to explore and grow just waiting for you to discover them!
