More news about Wythall Hamfest this year!

The latest is that we have a Radio Society of Great Britain stall in attendance; local reps will be answering your queries and they will also have a fully-stocked bookstall, something always appreciated by “hamfesters”.


Kite flying at the 2015 Hamfest

Following the success of last year’s event, we are also putting on some short talks.

Roger Stafford G4ROJ will be on the park field behind the halls flying kite antennas from early on and he will also be giving a short presentation later in the day; one of the top UK contesters Lee Volante G0MTN will be showing you how to build a really effective HF station –  maybe worth a visit before you buy your new HF rig from Martin Lynch? And local Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) guru Noel G8NDT will be on hand with a DMR Q & A session where you can ask anything you wish and hopefully get an answer.

So Wythall Hamfest is well-named this year – not just stalls and traders, but talks and demos too – a real “fest” for Hams!

Make sure you are there – the best radio day out in the Midlands takes place on Sunday 20th March at 10:00 at Wythall House, Silver Street B47 6LZ
