    September Meeting
    Tue 5-Sep-2017, 7.30-10pm
    Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street
    "Radio Caroline"
    By Keith Maton G6NHU

    The September meeting of the Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society (CARS) will feature a very topical talk by members of the Clacton Martello Tower Group. They have been active recently on board Radio Caroline's Ross Revenge for a special event station using the call GB5RC celebrating 50 years of Offshore Radio.

    Moored in the Blackwater near Bradwell-on-Sea, the Ross Revenge has recently undergone some extensive changes and refurbishment and continues to broadcast both online and on occasion via Manx Radio and recently with BBC Essex. Most recently it has obtained the use of 648kHz (the former BBC WS frequency). We will hear about the recent activities and plans for the future.

    The talk will be held at Oaklands Museum on Tuesday September 5th starting at 7.30pm

    Visitors welcome. Free entry and parking. The purchase of a raffle ticket is requested. Refreshments are available

    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.
