100 Years of Amateur Aerials

July 28, 2014 By: Chris G7DDN Category: Club, News

Tomorrow evening sees the last of the RSGB Centenary talks at Wythall Radio Club.


A multi-wire Cage Antenna 36″ in diameter – you don’t see many of these around today!

During this year we have been following the presentations produced by our national society in re-visiting its first hundred years of existence.

So far we have looked at how the RSGB came into being and the role of the early amateurs in wartime; we saw how the race to cross the atlantic with amateur signals unfolded, and tomorrow we will take a look at the history of amateur antennas.

The presentation starts at 2030 in the Club Shack in the basement of Wythall House, Silver Street, Wythall B47 6LZ and visitors, including you, will be very welcome!
