July 13, 2017 By: G7DDN Category: Club, News, Training

We are very pleased to announce that Wythall Radio Club will be running our annual Advanced License Course at Wythall House this autumn. 

Classes will begin on Monday 4th September 2017. The 15 week course is delivered in the club shack on Monday evenings from 8.00pm – 10.00pm, though you should note that there is a Saturday morning requirement scheduled for 25th November.

The actual Advanced Examination is scheduled for Saturday 9th December at 1.00pm.

The total cost of the course is £60. This includes the official course book, course materials, exam fees and all admin costs.

If you are an Intermediate Licence holder and you are interested in doing this course, please contact Wythall Radio Club’s Training Co-ordinator, Chris G0EYO at [email protected] as soon as possible. There is also more information on training available here.

Five Gain Their Intermediate Licence

July 04, 2017 By: G7DDN Category: Club, News, Training

It could be the title of an Enid Blyton book, but it’s actually the latest fantastic news from Wythall Radio Club’s Training Team!

After weeks of studying, all five candidates sat their Intermediate Exam at the Club last night. And it was great to hear that all five passed with flying colours. 

So it’s congratulations from everyone at WRC to (from left to right in the photo) Jonathan M6JHX, Stuart M6HVF, Jonathan M6ITQ, Stuart M6SUD and Mike M6ILX, who will now all be upgrading their callsigns to 2E0 prefixes, just as soon as Ofcom let them!

Our thanks to all our Training Team, Invigilators and Tutors.

We now hope that these five will join our autumn Advanced course and go on to achieve the highest licensing level in the hobby.

Morse Maestro

July 03, 2017 By: G7DDN Category: Club, Fun, News, Training

Wythall Radio Club member Jamie M0SDV is celebrating today. 

He has been crowned the winner of this year’s Lew Williams Shield award.

Each May, we designate the month as our Morse Activity month and members are invited to show evidence of progress in learning and/or using the Code in the Radio hobby.

This year Jamie, (who is still only 16, even though he is tall!) was nominated the winner by the judging panel. This comes hot on the heels of him recently gaining his Full licence callsign a few months ago.

It’s been an exciting few weeks for the young man, who is pictured here at last weekend’s Field Day and BBQ, receiving his awards from judge Lee G0MTN. 

Well done Jamie, from everyone at WRC!
