Celebrate 100 Years Of Radio In The UK

MEMBERS of one of the Midlands’ largest radio clubs are taking part in an event later this month to mark 100 years of radio in the UK.

Wythall Radio Club, based at Wythall House in Silver Street, is putting on a radio station for two days to communicate to the world in celebration of the founding of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB).

In 1913, the enthusiasts who formed the RSGB were among the early pioneers of radio across the UK and the world. Members went on to become leading lights in the formation of the BBC and played major roles in wartime communications and code-breaking during the Second World War......

Ireland's Youngest Amateur Radio Operator

The North Cork Radio Group would like to congratulate all successful candidates that took the recent HAREC exam at Comreg offices on 10th October last.

One of the candidates was Jordan Cummins, who is a member of the Group and is the son of Lisa EI9GSB and Tony EI3GAB.

Jordan was one of the EI team who attended YOTA in Estonia in August. His interest grew majorly in the hobby as a result of the YOTA experience and he vowed at the venue that he would study for and sit the exam in October. He kept his word and put in many hours of  study which resulted in him passing the exam, which he was notified of on 23rd Oct.

Not only did he pass the exam, but he has become Ireland's youngest operator .... did we mention Jordan is only 14!! ........
