Club Calls Contest 2017 02[1299]
Jeff G6YPJ, Mike M0XXM and Ted G4OZG took part in THE CLUB CALLS CONTEST at the club house Saturday. Mike G0SHC took part from home as the other half of the team, he made 54 QSOs and the team at club 49 QSOs, hopefully all involved enjoyed the day and a big THANKYOU to all who volunteered to run the stations on behalf of the club.
I know that Ted G4OZG and Mike G0SHC have really been pushing the club forward in taking part in the RSGB events both at the club and at home and I’m sure would like more members to join the ranks to try and raise the club up the rankings.

Ofcom has today published guidance to help amateur radio licensees to understand and comply with the terms and conditions of the UK amateur radio licence. This guidance should therefore, be read in conjunction with the licence.
We are aware from member enquires that there are areas of operating practice where further advice may be appreciated, and we are thus proposing to publish some “Best Practice” notes later in the year.
