We currently meet twice a month at Gweal-An-Tops School in Redruth on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. The 1st meeting is our main meeting and the next meeting, on the 3rd Thursday is more of a social evening where we meet up and have a good old natter and a cuppa. When we can we try to get someone to give us a talk at either meeting on a subject of their choice. Sometimes radio related and sometime on a subject of general interest. Our committee meeting is held on the 1st Wednesday of the month.
The Club was initially formed back in the 1940’s as the West Cornwall Radio Club. The name was changed in the late 1950’s to become The Cornish Radio & Television Club and again some time later to become the Cornish Radio amateur club.
The Club’s annual Radio Rally held in July is an event that has been looked forward to for many a long year and, events have been held in many areas but, since 1964 predominantly in Newquay and Truro in the early years.
Several years saw a fixed venue at what was then the Camborne Technical College. This venue was lost and we used Camborne School and Richard Lander School in Truro. Since around 1990 we have used the main sports hall at Penair School, Truro as the venue and have been well looked after by the Caretaker and his team.
Membership to our club is open to all interested in radio communications, electronics or indeed computing.
