Belated Happy New Year

Apologies for lack of activity on the site but I have been trying to resolve a problem highlighted by the hosting company. Apparently I had an excessive number of files on the server, exceeding the 200,000 limit across the 6 sites on the domain.

No site is particularly huge and this has been a little perplexing as it was reported that gx4crc.com was responsible for around 147,000 of that number!

To be all northern ‘any road up’ I am hoping I have sussed the problem having found a temporary folder with nearly 9mb size and no way to access the contents. Deleted this and set up a new directory and firmly crossing fingers in case my action has screwed the site installation completely.

Could do with a little more knowledge of the inner workings of the beast hi hi.

Anyway, a happy New Year to all visitors to the site.

We have already enjoyed the first two meeting evenings of the year and have plans in hand to operate a station for the 7th Camborne Girl Guides for thinking day on the air on February 15th.

Mike has obtained the special call GB7CGG for obvious reasons and it is our intention to be on the air between the hours of 10.00am to 5.00pm and have been promised a good attendance as invitations have been passed to all the local Guide Troops… should be a good day.

Operation will be from the 7th’s building in the grounds at the rear of the Camborne Community Centre which is about 50 yards from Camborne Police Station.

Visitors will be made very welcome and that includes licensees who will be able to operate should they so wish.

CRAC Rally 2013 – 7th July

A timely reminder to everyone. Rally 2013 is fast approaching and we will
be visiting the site next Saturday to manhandle the tables into position and
on site from early Sunday morning to meet and greet at first the Traders and
then our buying guests.

Doors will open at 1030am and we request that you all remember that and don’t
try to gain entry before that time. We need time first thing to allow everyone
to ready their stands for the visitors and to lend them a hand. We do not need
to be troubled by unauthorised visitors before the official start time as sorting
them out takes manpower away from more essential tasks. If you find yourself
asked to wait at the main door or to go back outside please comply with grace.
So have a lie in, don’t arrive at 9.00am and expect to come in immediately.
Opening is at 10.30am. We reserve the right to open earlier if all traders
are ready for the off and weather is particularly inclement.

Entry cost has been held at just £2.00 again this year even though the cost
of hiring the School seems to increase every year.

Opening time is 10.30 am

Items intended for sale on the bring and buy can be logged in before opening
of the show via the side entrance. Be prepared to pay a non returnable
administration fee of just 50p per item lodged for sale. This will help t
o cover our expences and deter entering numerous low value items for sale.

Whilst we take every possible precaution selecting traders for the show we
can not be held responsible for items purchased that are not fit for purpose.
So as buyers it up to you to carry out some due diligence and ensure you are
buying what you think you are buying and not a potentially expensive doorstop.

Contact details should appear within the programme and if you do have a problem
please contact the trader direct and not CRAC.

We hope to see a good crowd on the day as it is not just a trade show but an
annual social event giving everyone the chance to meet personally with and put
a face to the regular contacts you have beet talking with on a day to day basis.

So see you all there:

Cornish Radio Amateur Club Rally
Penair School
Truro
Cornwall

Sunday 7th July 2013 — opens 10.30am — closes when the traders
decide to pack up their wares. My suggestion is to come earlier rather
than later as in the past few years we have been packed away earlier each year.

To wet your appetite I can confirm attendance by

Henry Westlake for all your antenna, coax and hardware needs
Devon DX Group — good 2nd hand source
Worsley Communications – a local supplier of Amateur Radio equipment
Peter, formerly Garex
Kevin and Margaret from Bristol — general equipment

and more !

Refreshments will again be available from Colin’s catering van in the car park.

Warning – epidemic of 2E0′s expected in W Cornwall

The intermediate examination took place on Wednesday  and there was a 100% success rate from the candidates sitting the test.

Unfortunately an unexpected work commitment prevented Martin from taking the exam as he had to go up to a meeting in London and was unable to get back in time to take part. Never mind Martin I’m sure there will be a chance to take the test again in the not too distant future as we have a couple of folk to cater for in the Advanced category and no doubt we can arrange it for the same night.

Congratulations to the ‘Magnificent Nine’

Jim ,Brian [Ken G0FIC]  John, Treve,  Mike, Paul, Carol, John,  Shaun,

Well done everyone.

Thinking day on the air 2013

World Thinking Day on the Air (TDOTA)

TDOTA 2013

will be the 3rd full weekend in February 16 & 17

TDOTA is an opportunity for the members of the Guide Association from the youngest Rainbow to the oldest Trefoil Guild member to talk to other members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world via Amateur Radio.

The 22nd February is Thinking Day because it was the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout and Guide movements, and his wife Olave, who was the first World Chief Guide.

On this day each year members of WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts)
remember the founders of the movement and take part in various activities to think about their sisters throughout the world.

Happy New Year – 2013

Wow, that went quickly, Christmas has managed to do its old trick of building up for ages and then ending, seemingly, before it started.

Hope you all had a really great time be it with your children, grandchildren, family or quietly at home with your own company and Christmas Television.

All that remains is to wish all members, their families, friends and all visitors to the site a very Happy and Prosperous New Year for 2013. Let’s hope we don’t have too many severe weather incidents and send our best wishes to all who have been affected badly by the recent spate of flooding here in the UK and, of course, to all those folk on the Eastern Seaboard of the USA as they get themselves back to normality after the horror of hurricane Sandy a few weeks back.

We have no way of controlling our weather (good job too) but I believe we are all keeping our fingers firmly crossed for a somewhat more sunny, drier Spring/Summer in 2013, especially at the weekends! we don’t mind overnight rain as long as the days are warm and bright.

CRAC Members Christmas Party 20th Dec

This year we are holding the Christmas get together at Gweal An Top on what would have been the December Constructors evening.

Peter, G3WKP has kindly offered to being along his electronic organ and provide us with background Christmas music to help us get ion the mood for the festive season.

If you are a member and intend to come along and wish to partake in the traditional Rippon’s Pasty which will be delivered to us during the evening please contact Ken G0FIC to let him know your requirements as there is also the opportunity of ordering Rippon’s specialty pasty, the breakfast pasty if you so desire.

If your order is not recorded we cannot guarantee there will be a pasty for you as the amount ordered will be dependent upon the pre-orders received as we do not want to over order, for obvious reasons.

Hope to see many of you there as it should be a good evening.

If you would like to bring along some mince pies and cream or a Stollen Cake don’t hesitate to do so as the more the merrier to help the evening along.

The normal tea and coffee facilities will of course be available to help wash the pasty down.
