For reasons I am sure you can guess, we have decided to postpone the junk sale scheduled for the 26th March. As you know the room is always packed, and with various things changing hands it would prevent a high risk of spreading the virus. We are sorry about this and I myself am disappointed, but, we are hoping to be able to reschedule it later in the early summer. Unfortunately the lectures planned for April will also be postponed for similar reasons, but again we hope to run the same lectures later in the year or early next year. As we are radio amateurs, we hope to make use of this to stay in contact and socialise over the air waves, so we will be announcing at net to take place at the time when we would usually have a ‘pass out’ so at least we can still chew rag!
We will send out regular emails with any further news.
Take care, and good health to all of you, do keep in touch. 73 Simon M0ZSU
It was a pleasure to see many members at the RADARC AGM last week, thank you for braving the rain. It was a nice evening and big thanks to James 2E0JPM for providing a lovely buffet. Vin G4JTR has kindly taken some photos of the award ceremony. Below is a list of our deserving 2019 trophy winners.
Much fun was had with AM QSOs between an ex army Clansman manpack and and WW2 Wireless set 18 man pack on 40 metres. Note the QSL card! Also, work on ATV equipment and 23cm linear by members using club test equipment.
Thanks to kind assistance from John G4RDC, Graham M7GRA and Mike M0DYD on Saturday we now have a Diamond V2000 (2m, 70cms and 6m) on the Rugby Club building which we can use at practical evenings. Thanks to the Rugby club as well for kindly allowing this.
Dear Members, RADARC is pleased to announce that we are holding an 85th year celebration at the Royal Oak, Knowl Hill RG10 9YE on Saturday 15th June 2019 We will be setting up a small station/display in the field at the back from 11:30am, and from that point onwards you are very welcome to join in informally, have a pint etc. At 18:00 there will be a barbeque @ £5 per head. If you wish to just come along just for this that is of course fine.
The Royal Oak is a nice traditional pub in a beautiful location, so it should be fun. Lets hope the weather is kind as well. If you are intending to join us for the barbecue, please let me know so that I can give the Royal Oak an idea of numbers. Looking forward to seeing you there. Thanks and 73 Simon M0ZSU, RADARC
