A special visit

January 19, 2014 By: Chris G7DDN Category: Club, News

This Tuesday’s meeting at Wythall Radio Club is a very special one in our calendar for 2014 – pleasing then that it is coming so early in the year!CWI-2

Richard G3CWI, owner and proprietor of Sotabeams is visiting the club to demonstrate to us how to go portable this coming Spring, Summer and Autumn, preferably with his superb products!

sotabeamsadNot only is Richard the purveyor of truly excellent and innovative portable goodies, he is a also leading light in the UK “Adventure Radio” movement.  He was one of the Founding Fathers of the SOTA (Summits on the Air) movement. Richard will often be found hiking or biking his way to the top of mountains far and wide in search of Amateur contacts from 1.8MHz to 10GHz!

Many members have been eagerly awaiting Richard’s visit and laments were heard last year that his visit was not taking place just before Christmas, but there are bound to be some January sales on(!) and Wythallians will have a little bit of cash left over, we are sure!!

Why not come and meet Richard this Tuesday? 2030 in the Darts Room at Wythall House, Silver Street, Wythall. B47 6LZ. E-mail our President Chris Pettitt G0EYO at g0eyo@blueyonder.co.uk if you want any more details.
