There was a particularly pleasant surprise in store for one young Wythall Radio Club member today.

On our club trip to Martin Lynch & Sons today, 15-year-old Jamie 2E0SDV was hoping to get a good deal on his first new HF radio, a Kenwood TS-590SG.

But on hearing about Jamie’s prospective purchase, and to recognise his great achievement in gaining over 1000 QSOs on the recent RSGB Youth DXpedition to South Wales, both the store and the folk from Kenwood UK had a special surprise for him.

In addition to a “better-than-advertised-on-the-day” price for the radio(!), Kenwood UK threw in an internal voice recording board, while Martin Lynch & Sons donated a Kenwood MC-60 desk microphone.

Now that is one lucky youngster and one hell of a Christmas present! Nice one Jamie!
