In the news this week we take a closer look at contesting with information about the Trans Tasman Low Bands Challenge, the RD Contest, the International Museums Weekend, a contesting tip from Scott K9JY, a reminder to submit your logs for the VK Shires QSO Party and if that's not enough, we also have Andrew's Editorial, News this Week, a reminder to submit your content for AR Magazine, as well as World Wide Flora and Fauna, Summits on the Air and Roy's Helpline.

We look forward to you spending your time with us again this week. I hope you learn something new, have something to laugh about and manage to plan an on-air activity as your next adventure. Next week is the Club Focus edition, so get your club notes together, write a story about your amateur radio club, an activity you've planned and something about when and where you get together. Send your story, or better still, a recording of your story, to newswest@vk6.net and we'll put it to air next week.

Contributions to the news this week are made by Ty, Roy, Bob, Glynn, Andrew and Scott. NewsWest is produced and presented by WA Amateur Radio News on behalf of Radio Amateurs in Western Australia and beyond.
