During the month we encourage all in the club to either a) have a first go at learning the code or b) improve on your rusty skills. :)

Enid Blyton would be proud! Thanks to the Wythall Radio Club Training Team, there are 5 new entrants to our wonderful hobby today.
Our online Foundation Course is very popular these days and attracts people from all around the East and West Midlands.
Congratulations from the whole club then go to (left to right in the photo) David from Stratford-upon-Avon, Ian from Warwick (at rear), Ben (aged 10) from Swadlincote in Derbyshire and Kim from Stratford-upon-Avon. (Sadly Carl from Redditch is not pictured)
Our thanks as always to our training team and invigilators.
We are now looking towards May 13th & 14th when three more online Foundation students will be taking their practical assessments and examination. Watch this space!

If you are tuning around in the next few days on the 2 metre band or on GB3WL in the Birmingham area (or even further afield) and hear some stations exchanging numbers, you just might have stumbled upon the Wythall Radio Club Easter Contest.
Just as at Christmas, we hold an event to get our members on air and working each other. Points are given for each member worked and each discrete member worked across the period also counts as a multiplying factor (or multiplier) to attain a final score. It sounds complicated but we have a clever Excel spreadsheet which keeps score for us!
The best 3 days of the 5 days of Easter are adjudicated and the top 3 winners in each category get Easter Eggs as prizes. With 6 chocolate prizes, its a short but highly contested event.
No wonder so many Wythall RC members are getting larger!
