Meetings commence at around 1930 Hrs.
Each month we try to host a talk on an interesting topic, normally radio or computer related but, from time to time of general interest (any volunteers or suggestions for a talk or presenter please let us know). In November the activities includes a bring and buy sale at the meeting with the December evening being dedicated to an all section Christmas Party with a pasty supper.
The normal format of our meetings is a discussion of Club business, followed by a break for refreshments (tea & coffee) followed by an interesting talk oin many and varied topics, this year to date we have had talks on the Marconi station at Bass,Point ILS Landing Systems, Communications & National Security,the special repair section linked to the RAF, Knot tying (always useful for antenna erection), Antennas by David G3NPB, former Club Chairman, and some chatter sessions
when a speaker has not been available.
The Computer Section meetings were suspended earlier this year as numbers had dropped off considerably with on occasion only two attendees coming along. This was not financially viable when you consider the cost of room rent and it was decided to amalgamate the two sections with most of us using computers regularly this was thought to be the most appropriate solution to the financial drain a separate compuer session was becoming. You can attend any of these meetings without having to join forst as our guest to see if the Club is right for you for a maximum of two meetings. We do then expect a subscription to be taken out.
Further details regarding the Club, and Amateur Radio generally, can be obtained from the Chairman (Ken) or P.R.O. (Steve) Please complete the following request for information addressed to the appropriate person.

Membership of the Club is open to anyone with an interest in electronics and/or communication by “wireless”. The club also has a leaning towards computing having held separate Computer Section meetings for some years which have now been amalgamated within the regular monthly meetings.
