We are again meeting at the Countryman, Piece, Carnkie on Wednesday evening, June 24th from aroud 7.00pm onwards.
Food available within the pub for those wishing to treat themselves. Its steak night on a Wednesday with I believe two steak meals for £18.00
Wednesday 24th is also Folk evening at the Countryman with a gathering of musicians effectively jamming from I think around 20.30pm.
All are welcome.
We are hoping to be able to announce that there will be a Foundation training course arranged for September 2015.
This enables everyone to enjoy the Summer before commitment to the training.
Contact G0FIC for information.
We suggest you purchase the Foundation manual for the RSGB or any other source and begin your studying before
the course takes place. Just reading it several times will mean many facts have been retained and will make the training sessions more enjoyable and easier to follow.
A demonstration Special Event Station will be operational at the Club HQ, Gweal An Top School, School Lane, Redruth from arounf 10.00 hrs to 16.00 hrs with operation taking place on the HF bands.
We invite all of our members or local licensed amateurs along to operate and suggest this is an ideal opportunity for those interested in taking up the hobby to come long and meet us to see what it is allabout and to find out how to train and become qualified to obtain your first call sign at the beginning of a hobby that will be with ypu for the rest of your life.
See you there!

Distance-learning course a great success
rsgb | May 15, 2015
The Bath-based radio training team have been running classroom courses for over 15 years but in 2011 they started running distance learning courses for the Advanced exam.
The courses have since proved to be far more popular than the team ever envisaged, with hundreds signing up to join.
Not all of those who start complete the course but, so far, the average pass rate is over 85%.
The June exam should see the number of successful candidates pass the 300 mark.
The team are now enrolling students for their next course that will run from July to the December exam.
A £30 deposit is taken to secure a place on the course, and the deposit is refunded to those who sit the exam.
Those that do not finish the course agree to donate their deposit to charity.
In reality, many of the successful students also donate their deposits and the team has so far raised over £4,000 for radio-related good causes.
Recent donations include the Radio Communications Foundation, RAIBC and the British Wireless for the Blind Fund.
Further details can be obtained from Steve Hartley, G0FUW, by emailing G0FUW@tiscali.co.uk.

Silent Key Service – Doug Fisher
A Memorial Service is being held at Penmount Crematorium Truro
Saturday June 20th at 3.00. pm
Many Thanks Ken G0FIC
Doug would be well known by our members who were around back in the 70’s and 80’s. He ran Bryants Van Hire at Lanner for many years and moved away from the County some years back. His call sign escapes me at present but I believe he was a G4.
This evening sees another impromptu gathering at the Countryman Pub at Piece.
All are welcome and reasonably priced good food is available at the pub (ask Bob & Cheryll for confirmation). Tonight there should be a folk music evening too with on most occasions Mr Finbar Fury of the Fureys taking part.
Hope to see you there from around 7.15 onwards usually but no set time.
