Mike G4VPD won the Open section last year

It is that special time of year again, when the airwaves around Wythall (and a bit further afield too!) will be full of stations exchanging numbers. No, it’s not a spy extravaganza, it’s just the Wythall Radio Club Christmas Contest again!

Members are encouraged to work each other as often as possible between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day.

Jim 2E0BLP won the FM Trophy in 2014

The rules are a little difficult to explain here, but fret not, as contest supremo Lee G0MTN is on hand tonight to help out.

Pop down to the shack at 20:30 to hear Lee’s latest Contest Update – there will doubtless be a few tweaks to enhance the event – it is all about “having fun with RF” as our club motto states, and it invariably lives up to its name.

The usual place of course, Wythall House, B47 6LZ. It’s the place to be on Tuesday nights!
