December 1958’s PW cover…

It’s the season for “big name” guests at Wythall Radio Club at the moment. Following last week’s thoroughly professional presentation from Don G3BJ, this Tuesday we welcome another Don, G3XTT, the editor of Practical Wireless magazine.

PW, as it is affectionately known, is the largest Amateur Radio magazine in the UK and has been around for many years – her editors have become household names in the hobby – many hams remember the F. J. Camm years, for example.

PW has been undergoing a renaissance under new editor Don, following the recent retirement of Rob Mannion G3XFD, who was also a popular figurehead for the publication for many years.

The members of Wythall Radio Club are really looking forward to welcoming Don G3XTT, who is not only a magazine editor, but is also a book author, as well as a world-renowned DXer and Contester!

Why not pop along this Tuesday 26th May? We will be meeting in the Darts Room at Wythall House, Silver Street, Wythall. B47 6LZ. You will be very welcome (if there’s room!)
