One of Wythall Radio Club’s youngest members has been spilling the beans on his recent exciting adventures!


Jamie 2E0SDV on the far left, ever ready with handheld in tow!

On 23rd July, Jamie 2E0SDV made his way to The Brecon Beacons in South Wales where he took part in the first ever RSGB Youth DXpedition not far from the village of Talgarth.

Organised by the society’s newly-formed Youth Committee, the event was part of a project to encourage youngsters deeper into the Amateur Radio hobby – it was sponsored by a number of different organisations with the main one being our friends from Kenwood Communications, who provided all the transceivers for the event.

Using the callsign MC0RYC and using mostly 80m, 40m and 20m, Jamie & the team made a grand total of 4617 contacts, of which Jamie made the majority! We are very proud at Wythall Radio Club of Jamie’s achievements.

Jamie has blogged about his time in Wales on his own website, so why not click through and have a look at a longer version of his report?
