Tim Kirby G4VXE "drowning" in PowerPoint on Tuesday at Wythall RC!

A fantastic turnout on Tuesday evening just gone (30+ members, around half the membership!) enjoyed a compelling presentation, courtesy of Tim G4VXE.

Entitled “My World of VHF”, Tim took us on a journey through all manner of VHF operating practices, propagation, anecdotes & antennas and showed us just how much is happening on VHF and UHF.  As a seasoned operator, contester, DXpeditioner and column writer for “Practical Wireless” magazine, there was little left untouched in his overview of the bands from 50MHz to 432MHz.

Members were unanimous in their praise for an inspiring evening and there is already talk of further antennas being erected at a few members’ locations in the near future.  It was a great prelude to our own exploits on VHF Field Day coming up the weekend after next.

So… thank you Tim!
