    Sheffield and District Wireless Society held its AGM and Awards
    Presentation Night on Wednesday 2nd March 2022.

    2022 SDWS AGM

    The Society is doing very well indeed in spite of the recent restrictions
    due to the Covid pandemic.  Face to face meetings are once again taking
    place at the Rutland Hotel on the first Wednesday of each month and a full programme of talks and other events is now planned up to the end of the
    year. These can be accessed via both the  public and members only SDWS Facebook pages.

    The AGM resulted in a several committee changes. The General Secretary,
    Peter G3PHO, decided to step down after some 60 years (!) or so of being on various radio club committees.  David M0GDX kindly volunteered to take on
    the Programme Secretarys job. Likewise, Graham G3YJR handed his Treasurers
    job over to a younger person.  We also have a new Chair man in the shape of Andy M0GAV.  All these and more can be read in the Minutes PDF file.

    The highlight of the Awards Presentations were the October 2021
    Construction Competition awards. These are shown below in the photos

    The Award for Progress in Amateur Radio was, this year, given to Pat
    Davies, M7PAT, the partner of Dave Shaw, M5DWI. Pat is a relatively new licencee and, since getting her callsign,  has made significant progress in contesting and is now coming well up the league charts in both HF and VHF contests. She has won a number of RSGB Contest certificates for being the highest place Foundation Licence holder. Well done Pat!
