wia_logoHi Bob,

A bit of news for the Beru website.

This is an announcement from the WIA for the contest:

RSGB 80th Commonwealth Contest 11 and 12 March for 24 hours FROM 10.00 GMT.
The challenge of contesting has endured from the earliest days of
radio communication and is part of modern Amateur Radio activities
that are now very diverse.

The Commonwealth Contest celebrates its 80th, and is a CW-only
affair run by the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB).

Proudly taking part on behalf of the IARU member radio society the
WIA, is Headquarters Station VK4KW. It will be run by Phil VK4BAA
and Trent VK4TS with contact to VK4KW eligible for special
multiplier points.

The RSGB will also have three draws with mementos as prizes for the
lucky Commonwealth country entrants.

The 80th Commonwealth Contest will be March 11 and 12 – see the
rules for more details.
