One of Wythall Radio Club’s youngest and most enthusiastic members, Jamie 2E0SDV, is off on an exciting adventure very soon now.

The 15-year-old is part of the Radio Society of Great Britain’s Youth Committee DXpedition starting this coming week.

The Kenwood-sponsored event takes place in the Brecon Beacons from 23rd July for a week and Jamie will be active as one of the operators of MC0RYC on all HF & VHF bands including satellite operations.

During the week, Jamie and his colleagues will be activating two summits, Pen-y-fan and Waun-Fach. Provided the weather is good, these activations are planned take place on 25/26 July in the afternoon and again on the 28/29 July at 1200 UTC.

Jamie tells us that he will be doing many other activities too including Direction Finding and antenna-building as well as simply “having fun with RF” as our club strapline says!

We wish him all the best, especially on the weather front, and look forward to working him on the air and maybe even during the “Islands on the Air” contest which takes place on the weekend of 25/26 July, while the youngsters are active.
