An amateur radio society has chosen to support British Wireless for the Blind Fund.

The Midland Amateur Radio Society will be running a special event station, with a call sign of GB80TH from as many different locations as possible during 2011.

They are also in the process of setting up a scheme whereby an award will be issued to amateurs who gain 20 points for working/hearing a certain number of MARS members during 2011.

Radio amateurs will pay for the privilege of getting a certificate for their shack wall and BWBF and the RNLI will benefit from the monies collected.

If you are interested in knowing more, contact MARS on gx1mar@live.co.uk
