Monthly Meetings

The main Radio Club meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month and the Construction evenings on the third Thursday. The venue for meetings is the former Scool premises at School Lane, Gweal An Top, Redruth, Cornwall our registered examination location remains as the Perranarworthal Church Hall for the time being.

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.

Currently our youngest licenced member is young Kira Halloway aged 13, she is quite lonely as a youngster so come on you youngsters give it a try, much more fun than your Nokia and no call charges to pay either; even our licence is free of charge now!

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.
