As a Commonwealth member of IARU I thought you would be interested in seeing the letter I have just received from our Patron HRH Duke of Edinburgh.
In it HRH refers to this year’s Commonwealth Contest which takes place on March 11/12 2017. Perhaps you would be kind enough to encourage some of your fellow Commonwealth amateurs to participate.
There are some very fine prizes to be won by entrants and details can be found at the webpage https://berucontest.wordpress.com/80th-commonwealth-contest-news/
