Radio Night at Walthew House

Tonight (3 May), we will be hosting a Radio and Practical Evening at Walthew House, with the focus being participation in this month’s RSGB 144MHz Activity Contest (lasting between 8:00 and 9:30pm). 

For those interested in the ‘other’ type of VHF voice operating – SSB rather than FM, and horizontal instead of vertical polarisation – this is the time to try it. 
With our rotatable Yagi beam antenna, we should be able to contact a number of stations around the country. 

Also, members wanting to give contesting a try, such VHF ‘activity nights’ provide a great introduction to this part of the hobby; they involve giving genuine signal reports, and contacts often result in conversation, not just a ‘Five-Nine’ response each time. 

Morse practice will be between 7pm and 7:30.

Posted: 3rd May 2022


The competition is running from the 1st May till end of July 2022.

Please see the diary to the right of this page for dates and details of meetings.

Walthew House station upgrades

Today, Saturday 16th April saw work begin to upgrade the station at Walthew House with the installation of the new Icom IC7610 recently purchased from Lamco in Barnsley and one of the new Lenovo laptop computers.

With the radio now installed, the process of “getting to know it” will begin but it will bring a new dimension to our future radio sessions.
