Helping with the Fun Run

The members of Wythall Radio Club were out in force today for the annual Wythall Fun Run – not running, you understand(!) but, as you might expect, providing communications for the event.

Around 15 members handled two-way radio comms for all the control point marshals and for race control itself.

This is the third year we have done this and, as you might expect, we are getting better at it each time.

All involved reported that they had had great fun while helping the early morning event to go off as smoothly as possible.

GB3WL, our UHF repeater station, was pressed into service and performed admirably with talkback employed on 145.225 if required.

What great fun with RF and helping our local community to stay safe at the same time!
