RadioUser was launched in January 2006 – taking the very best from both Short Wave Magazine and Radio Active.
Short Wave Magazine was first published in 1937 to cater for the radio enthusiast. This it continued to do in its own inimitable way until March 1987 when, after 50 years of service to the UK radio amateur, it was re-launched to cater for the radio listener.
Since it’s debut, RadioUser has been the best selling radio listeners’ magazine in the UK. Source
