A Special Rally Attraction!

One of these might be up in the sky at the Wythall Rally!

It’s the time of year when Wythall Radio Club members start thinking about their forthcoming Rally.

Held on Sunday 8th March this year, the event is returning to its roots at Wythall House and leaving behind the rather impersonal halls of the school we used for a few years.

However there will be an added attraction this year! Roger G4ROJ, the Kite Antenna man famous from the TX Factor programme, is going to be in attendance flying kites on Wythall Park fields!

Roger contacted the club recently and suggested that, since he would be flying kites anyway that weekend, why not combine it with our rally and fly them on the huge fields we have at our new venue?

There may even be a short presentation in the clubhouse for those wanting to find out more about how to fly kite antennas. Watch this space!

Another reason to get that date in your diary – Sunday 8th March!
