NewsWest for Sunday 1st December 2019 is the club Focus edition.  In this programme we give time to clubs to promote themselves and their activities.

Welcome to December.  In the Church Calendar today is Advent Sunday, and to over simplify it’s meaning, Advent is the countdown to Christmas.  

In this week’s club focus, we have news from several clubs, including a reminder from Clive about the Radio Amateur Old Timer’s Club broadcast tomorrow, and Chris brings us news from the Radio amateur Society of Australia.

We bring you an update on Barry VK6WF/VK2WB’s situation following the total loss of his property in recent fires in New South Wales, and Dan talks about his experience on ten metres.

We’ve got Club Focus the series, where we look at arrangements a club may make for the Christmas NEw Year period,  and we have Roy’s Helpline
