Mike Jones 2E0MLJ visit as DRM Region 11

Mike visited the Club last evening and presented to us in two parts:

1. The RSGB Youth

Mike  2E0MLJ is Chairman of the RSGB Youth Committee which promotes the interests of young people in the amateur radio community.

He talked about the aims of the Youth Committee and highlighted some of the sponsored activities offered courtesy of the RSGB and others.

Apparently there are 201 Youth Members of the Society with age range to 25 Yrs even though the membership is FREE. Josh is one of them.

There is a DX-Pedition to Wales in July with cost being just £50, the rest covered by the RSGB – Lots of SOTA activity in the Brecon Beacons

plus some ARDF and lots of fun activities including zip-wires and other dangerous activities enjoyed when you are young.

With Mike’s obvious passion and enthusiasm watch this space as the RSGB is actively targeting youth and, as Mike said the course really is

linked to maths and physics and an excellent boost to School learning.

We have been left with some application forms to get our other young members joined up.

2. The RSGB work

Numerous topics covered including:

  • Subscription Cost
  • EMC Committee
  • Planning Help available
  • RADCOM content level – perhaps a bit high for the majority of readers
  • Perception of Value to prospective members
  • The QSL Bureau
  • Website
  • Online additional magazines
  • Club monthly magazine

Probably much more too. Mike answered most questions but has gone away with a few to ask the Society and will

provide responses to us. For example why did the Society stop taking part in IMD!

To ensure inclusion in GB2RS Mike has said he will get articles included if sent to him.

Apologies but this is all from memory and I no longer qualify for youth status Hi Hi

RSGB Regional Representative visit

We are to be joined this evening by the Assistant DRM for region 11. Hw will talk to us about the activities of the RSGB and relay any topics we raise with him for cascading upwards to the RSGB for consideration and an answer if he is unable to address the topic sufficiently.

It is the first time for a we have been visited since Mark M0VAU relinquished his post. The new brrom I understand is very keen at present so we should make use of his enthusiasm before he becomes bitter and twisted and as cynical as the rest of us!

Venue Gweal An Top School time 7.30 kick off.

Some sad news

I am sorry to report that Nike G1NRF’s Mother passed away on the evening of Tuesday 31st March after a long illness.

Our thoughts are with you and all the family Mike.

The next few weeks will be hard but things will improve with the passage of time.

Don’t worry, we will find you a job for the coming year at the AGM now we know you are willing to stand for Committee again.
