Wythall Radio Club does Wythall Carnival!

Yesterday saw several members having fun with RF at our local summer family event, the Wythall Carnival.

Held in the grounds of our meeting place at Wythall House, the fields were teeming with families out to enjoy themselves for the day. Most of the local societies and organisations were to be seen, and WRC is no different.

We put together a stall featuring Amateur Radio demos, Morse Code, RSGB information, rolling video programmes, home-brew projects, an HF Station, a VHF/UHF Station and even a D-STAR demonstration station. Much fun was had by all who took part, and there were more than few expressions of interest in the next Foundation Course! Several WRC members were also on duty in the car park, helping the public to find a space (not an easy job, that!)

The weather gods were kind to us too and we were grateful to be placed close by the Hog Roast! All in all, though tired by the end of the day, we went home with the feeling of a job well done!
