    "Military Radios for Amateur Radio"
    By Andy Tyler G1GKN

    Andy Tyler G1GKN will talk about using ex-military radios for amateur radio – particularly the Clansman series which are widely available.

    Radio Amateurs have always been very good at recycling electronics and it seems we still are !! Andy's talk will look at the history of radio communications in the British Army since WW2 and the radios that were brought by amateurs from such places as Lisle Street in the 1950's and 60's.

    He will also look at the latest MOD release, the Clansman Combat Radio System, its suitability for amateur radio and what is available now on Ebay. He will also look at a few radios which probably never saw service with the British Army, but are useful in their own right. So if you want to go green, go military………

    We will have a refreshments break and our famous raffle - so do pop along!

    Directions / Parking

    You can drive all the way up Moulsham Street from Parkway but NOT the other way.

    Another way is to enter Moulsham Street after going round the Miami Roundabout (by Tesco), then along New London Road 200 yards, turn right into Moulsham Street and after 100 yards turn right again into the Museum.

    NOTE: There is plenty of car parking space but do not park directly in front of the Museum - that is reserved for people unloading kit and Disabled car drivers. Also - take care as there are three severe Sleeping Policeman as well.
