Question Time

January 28, 2017 By: Chris G7DDN Category: Club, Fun, News

This coming Tuesday evening, 31st January, it’s Question Time at Wythall Radio Club.

Maybe this has been done before??

Not the BBC Political programme though… but our version of it. 

We are hosting an “Ask the Panel” evening where 3 of our resident radio “experts” will be answering your questions about the hobby.

Dave G3YXM, Lee G0MTN and John G3VRF will be addressing those technical and operational issues that may have been bugging you. 

So if you want to know, for example, what a TCXO is or does, when high SWR actually matters, or how to set up transmit audio for best clarity, you need to join us this Tuesday. 

The usual venue, Wythall House, Silver Street, B47 6LZ, kicking off at 20.30 – be there!

The Cambridge Community Remote Station Project

Wythall Radio Club is pleased to announce that Bob Whelan G3PJT will be coming to the club next Tuesday (24th January) to give a talk and demonstration on the Cambridge Community Remote Radio Project.

This is a talk that was given at the RSGB Convention in October 2016.

Bob is travelling some considerable distance to visit us and he has therefore asked to start at 8.00PM instead of the usual 8.30pm. He has also suggested that it might be a good idea to read his article (from RadCom Jan 2016) to give a background to his talk. 

Bob hopes to welcome as many folk as possible. As you might expect, there has also been some outside interest in this talk from members of other clubs, so we expect a large audience and advise that you grab your seat early!

So see you on Tuesday – in the Darts Room, Wythall House, Silver Street, Wythall B47 6LZ.

Radioworld to headline at Wythall Hamfest

January 13, 2017 By: Chris G7DDN Category: Club, Hamfest, News

Great news today for fans of the Wythall Hamfest – local dealer Radioworld are going to be our headline trader for 2017. 

Dave and Annette Hayward from Radioworld confirmed today that they will be in attendance for our next Hamfest on Sunday March 19th.

Annette is definitely the prettier of the Radioworld trio!

The Radioworld family have been friends of the club for many years but sadly couldn’t attend last year due to the move to their fantastic new shop near Cannock. 

But this year normal service is resumed, and together with son Sam, they will be looking to meet friends old and new and helping you out with that new Rig you’ve been promising yourself, maybe an Icom IC-7300?

You could even contact them now and pre-order to pick up on the day!

Remember the date, Sunday March 19th at Wythall House, Silver Street B47 6LZ.

The fun kicks off at 10:00.
