May Crossword Quiz

Just for fun, each month, we post a quiz challenging your knowledge of the club or amateur-radio in general. It might be a piece of WIARC history, or a technical question, perhaps something borrowed from the current qualification exam question bank. This month, a crossword puzzle! We will also post the answer to the previous month’s quiz and the names/callsigns of anyone who submitted a correct answer to or just use the website Contact form.

May 2020 Crossword Quiz:

Our monthly quiz is usually something quick and easy, but this month’s quiz will demand more effort than usual. Nevertheless, we hope that you find it challenging, educational and fun. It involves a WIARC and Amateur Radio – themed crossword puzzle that, when solved, will reveal a hidden message, that is the answer to the quiz.

  1. Download, print and solve (pencil recommended) the crossword puzzle remembering that all of the words are related to WIARC or Amateur Radio in some way. Use of Google to look for answers is allowed, so it’s not cheating. It may be a learning experience. As a minimum, solve the shaded boxes but solving the whole puzzle is much more fun.
  2. Using the solved puzzle, write out only the letters in shaded squares (order: from left to right, then from top to bottom) to reveal the hidden message. Send that message to or submit it using the contact form. 

Good Luck! Once again, you can submit your answer (the hidden message) to or just use the website Contact form.  The answer will be published at the beginning of June, together with a new monthly quiz for June.
