NewsWest 20th August 2017

Post date: Aug 19, 2017 12:41:46 AM

The dust of the Remembrance Day Contest has barely settled, the International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend still rings in our ears, and another Aussie contest, ALARA, looms on the horizon. This week we focus on New Amateurs, with hints and tips for new Hams, news of courses offered, those who pass their assessments, and those who have gained new callsigns. Along with this, we have our weekly offerings of Roy’s Helpline, Onno’s Foundations of Amateur Radio, and Andrew’s Editorial. And there’s more. All here on NewsWest, which you can hear on air, on demand and online. Visit our website, vk6 dot net, to find out how. NewsWest is the weekly news programme for Radio Amateurs and radio enthusiasts in Western Australia, which is produced by a team of volunteers at W.A. Amateur Radio News, and is put to air on Sunday mornings and evenings by a band of eager fellow Amateurs.
