CRG RALLY SUCCESS

Foxton - Sunday 6th April


Congratulations to Lawrence and the group for putting on a very successful rally. Despite the fickle weather, hams turned out in their hundreds and plentiful traders made sure it was worth their while.


CDARC members were well in evidence. Peter M0DCV operated the talk-in and, as usual, club members managed the Bring & Buy stall. We did a good trade and made a worthwhile contribution to the CDARC coffers, thanks to the efforts of our volunteers:


Steve G8CRB

Mike M0BLP

Dave G6KWA

John G0GKP

Ian G4AKD

Ron G3KBR

We are taking part in the 80m Club Championship which started in February and will run for several months.


This is accessible by everyone as it takes place between 8:00 and 9:30 (local) in the evening and club members participate from their own shacks using their own callsigns. Even if you don't feel confident enough to take part, you can listen to what's going on and gain experience for future events.


Each month, there will be one evening for SSB, one for CW and one for Data. You can take part in any or all of these as each evening is a separate event.


There's more information about dates and rules here: RSGB Contests


Coming sessions:

April 24th Data
May 5th SSB
May 14th Data
May 22nd CW


Note that, from April, UTC is one hour behind local time so a call made at 20:00 (local) should be logged as 19:00.
