  What's new for the Tall Trees?  
 
Here you can find things of both trivia and importance to club members. If you are a member and have something that you'd like the rest of the club, and possibly the rest of the world, to know about then let the webmaster know so we can publish it here. 
 

December 2012 
  We are delighted to report that Jimmy, 2E0EYP has now passed the Advanced exam for his full licence.  Congratulations to Mike Zero Hotel Golf Yankee !  
     
  Congratulations and commiserations too, for Brian, G3UJE whose individual entry into the 2012 CQ WW 160 CW contest which occured in January has resulted in runner-up position, narrowly beaten by M5O who scored fewer QSOs, but more multipliers.  2013's event soon comes up, so we wish the best of luck to Brian in that.

  November 2016
It was with great regret that we lost Phil G8WUY from our small group. He bacame a silent key on November 4th. Phil was a popular visitor at our meetings and despite fighting an illness over many months he still managed to get on the air occasionally and contributed to our competition events. He will be sadly missed by the entire club.
