Junk Sale (26th March) postponed

Dear Members,

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.

RADARC 85th Year Celbrations – June 15th 2019

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
