What's on at the club



The club is open and meeting on Friday evenings 19.00 Hrs. at Haylands Farm everyone welcome. The club shack is working and we are refurbishing the antennas following the long period when they were not used.

The club will be entering G3SKY in the Practical Wireless 70MHz contest which takes place on Sunday 26th September 2021. Rules will be in the September 2021 issue of Practical Wireless. This is by way of a hands on introduction to using high power equipment and antennas in a fun contest on a band that has recently become popular. Our focus is not about winning but is more about learning something new and having fun doing it.

A program of activities will be published shortly.

Please contact our secretary Graham Coleman by email for more information and an invitation to our Bramble Bank Zoom meetings on Tuesday evenings
