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:
Ruth & David M0ZEB
Another Constructors' Evening is planned for the 9th May meeting.
If you've got a project, new kit or just something interesting, which you'd like to show to the other members in a short presentation, please get in touch with David M0ZEB - firstname.lastname@example.org
RSGB Club Championship 80m
16th April - SSB
The number of contacts in the CDARC group:
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
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.
