20180729 - VK6WIA NewsWest for Sunday, 29 July 2018 - Special Show and Tell Edition

posted Jul 27, 2018, 11:11 PM by News Team
In the news this week we discover some of the stories behind building and inventing things within the hobby of Amateur Radio. Bob shares his fascination with wire, Steve is on YouTube, Andrew shares his adventures with antenna masts, Neil describes how he broadcasts this news, Peter has a DC Distribution Board, I've built a High Precision LC Meter and if that's not enough, we also have a new radio club in the best location of the world, there's the NewsWest Dinner and Raffle, Eddie tells us about the NCRG Hamfest, Glynn has a Jamboree on the Air heads-up and of course the news wouldn't be complete without Roy sharing the latest from the estate from VK6LK in the weekly Helpline.

Thank you to Steve, Roy, Peter, Neil, Glynn, Eddie, Bob and Andrew for their stories.

This news was made possible by contributions from radio amateurs like yourself. Getting it to us is as simple as sending an email to newswest@vk6.net.

One question you might have is, "What should I say?" and the answer to that is simple: Share what excites you, what makes you tick, what is of interest to you, what challenges you, what things you learnt, what mistakes you made, what activities you've got planned.

It doesn't have to be complicated. For example, Neil's story about how he broadcasts this news came to us in a simple email, just telling the story of what he does.

One comment I can make is that none of us are professional broadcasters. We have different levels of experience, different interests, different skills and different story telling abilities. Don't let that deter you from making your own contribution.

We also take feedback, on-air or on-line, so register your callback or visit the vk6.net website and let us know your thoughts on the program this week.

We'd love to keep making broadcasts about what you've been up to, so send in your tales, tall or true and we'll do what we can to get them on air. Our address again, newswest@vk6.net.
