Opening in June

A nice positive update today. Providing the Government don’t change the schedule of lifting the restrictions on June 21st, we will be opening our doors on Friday June 25th.

Friday evenings are also when the Cricket Club have training sessions at the grounds but there is plenty of parking space around the pitch and good to watch as well. Tea and Coffee making facilities are available and the Cricket Club Bar will be open for those that might fancy a cheeky pint.

If the planned restrictions do change in the meantime, we will still be open but there will be a limit to the number of people permitted inside the shack at one time, so time in the shack will be limited so all members get access to the shack. We hope you will come and see us with prospect of joining and we look forward to you attending.


HF antenna setup today

An 80m – 10m end fed half wave antenna has been erected on site today. We hope to re-instate the hex beam antenna once club funds allow.

Many thanks to Andi, Bob and Paul for setting the antenna up. We now have HF capability for our club nights.


Club callsign and a new radio

Happy to announce we have received our club callsign from Ofcom. We have been issued G3EAR which we were very lucky to get as there aren’t many G3 callsigns available these days. We have also received a DMR ID number so we can use the TYT MD-9600 that Paul M0XZT has kindly loaned to the club on a semi permanent basis.
