February Meeting
6-Feb-2024, 7.30-9:30pm
Danbury Village Hall
"VHF Hands-on & Ofcom Update"
By CARS Members

Our next meeting on Tuesday 6th February provides a great opportunity to get hands on using the new club VHF Antenna at Danbury - one of the highest points in Essex. All are welcome to use your own callsign or the club one. The evening will also provide a great opportunity to socialise, or catch up if you missed us at the Canvey Rally.

It will also be a unique opportunity to hear a live update on the imminent new Ofcom licence and what it may mean for Operating, Bandplan and Training changes.

For this CARS is pleased to have amongst its members, Murray G6JYB, who as RSGB Spectrum Chair has been close to the action on this.

As usual, we will have some bargains, the famous raffle - with tea/coffee, biscuits - and a warm welcome !

March Meeting

"Lightship Talk"
By Sarah Case, FACT

For March we are privileged to have the folk behind the vessel - the Fellowship Afloat Charitable Trust (FACT -, who look after the Tollesbury Light Vessel, but who have quite wide range of other activities.

Sarah Case who is a Funding Officer at FACT will be giving us a talk all about the vessel and their wider and very worthy work.

The vessel itself was the site that CARS have operated from a few times for ILLW - International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend - most recently as Special Event Station GB5TLV in August 2023

All welcome - we have refreshements on offer and our famous raffle too
