Reviews of DUBUS : On the websites from eham, one of the most important
portals for amateur radio wordwide, I have found the following comments
about DUBUS Magazine. Reading this was really great joy for me. What
could be a better recommendation for DUBUS? (DL8HCZ)

This is an excellent VHF/UHF magazine, based on the last year of issues which is the only ones I have seen. It is written at a high level, much above QST, Worldradio, or CQ, but is still very understandable. Probably like a combination of QEX and NCJ for VHF. Contains excellent information on all frequencies above 50Mhz, including the upper microwaves, and it is neat to see that people are actually playing up there. It is also nice to read a European perspective to amateur radio. You quickly realize that the proportion of EU hams on VHF/UHF greatly outnumbers the proportion in the US. After reading an issue of DUBUS, I feel like selling all my HF gear and getting a 1296Mhz radio. If you are really curious about VHF/UHF propogation, equipment, and operating, this magazine is highly recommended.

Out of all the amateur magazines that I subscribe to, I look forward to reading DUBUS the most. The technical articles are of the highest caliber and the activity reports are exciting. When I puruse this journal, I feel that I am vicariously living the life of a European weak signal operator. The interest level in VHF DXing seems to be much higher there than in the US. I've read many accounts that were exclusive to DUBUS and not found anywhere else including the internet.
