As outlined in our principles, our main aim is to encourage participation in the RSGB contests, particularly the 80m Club Championships, the 80m Club Sprints and the VHF/UHF Activity Contests. There is a wealth of experience within our membership both in general operating and contest operating (from LF right up to microwave frequencies) and any new member can draw on that experience. The photos below give some indication of activities that members have been involved in.

TWCG operated portable (using the club callsign MW0TWC/P) from a good site in Mid Wales. Operating in the ‘Open’ section of the contest TWCG were placed in very creditable fourth position.
TWCG did extremely well in this series of activity contests, with first places in 50MHz, 70MHz, 144MHz and 1.2GHz sections and second place on 432MHz. The only reason we took second place overall rather than first place was due to our lack of SHF operators -
With group members being drawn from all over the U.K. organising social events in not easy. Never-
