NWRS Members have been using their homebrew antennas and baluns recently on various events and Club nights.

Other recent projects have included an Amateur Radio PR & Mobile Communications Caravan modification by Tony MW6TMQ and Ted MW6ADF and now the Club can help promote itself and the hobby at various events that are being planned for 2020 along the North Wales coast.

Multiple antenna systems can be fitted to the welded masts, enabling various radios to be fitted, which will be powered either from two 12V leisure batteries, 230V mains or generator. On September 14th the Society for the first time operated a special event station, GB0CTK, from its new club base, the Christ the King Catholic Church in Towyn. This activity was particularly fitting since it was the Churches and Chapels on the Air weekend and its Rev Deacon, Geoff Sewell MW0PUG, is also the NWRS Club Treasurer. The event station was organised by Martin Moyse 2W0NKS and visited by a good number of local people and parishioners as well as Rev Canon Bernard Morgan (Parish Priest) who were keen to find out what amateur radio is all about.
