Newswest for Sunday 7th April 2019 Club Focus Edition

posted Apr 7, 2019, 3:27 AM by Bob Bristow


It’s club focus this week and as well as the usual reports we have an intriguing piece on the role amateurs play in car rally safety. 

 

Hargfest is on next weekend and we remind you of the resurrection of the Jim Rumble perpetual trophy, news from Ham College, the WA VHF group, the Northern Corridor Radio Group and an update on CW from Dan.  Of course, there is Roy’s helpline and our usual segments.
