A great project for a radio club night, making a doublet from computer cable, remember to extend the ‘dipole’ wings by 11ft using the cut off from the vertical, which is what I did.

WAB book for logging (£2 per book) A life time membership which includes a log book, a set of CDs and a WAB Book Number which is collectable is £7. Each additional book number is then £3. So members can add additional book numbers to their collection. Clubs can also buy a book number and register the club callsign for a pack. The WAB Stand will be at the Rally in May I assume, this will give you an opportunity to see what you get and I think the price will be £5 on the rally day for a pack, saving you £2.
