It’s our NEW AMATEURS week, where we celebrate new, upgraded and returning calls. We’ll also discuss gear and portable operations. Onno talks QRP and where you need to go, in order to obtain your license.

Bob’s brings us up to speed with future events, including the Armistice Day special event callsign and associated activations, the HamFest dinner organised by the NewsWest team. He also looks back on the week, with a wrap for the FreeDV net.

There’s a few other important AR notices and reminders, and well put it over to Roy with Helpline.
