Essex Skills Night - Apr-2019

Monday evening, 7pm April 15th 2019, was Essex Skills Night, run by the CARS Training Team.

It does not matter whether you are a club member, or from other clubs, not licensed, or just interested - All are Welcome, and it is Free!

Radio and practical demos were supported by club members and Essex CW. The club table had Pauline M0XPK welcoming arrivals and a selection of bargains as part of a mini-tabletop sale

Practicals were ran in the Hawkins Room, whilst Morse Appreciation was available from Dean G4WIQ and Rob M0KCP from Essex CW Club. The evening had a Foundation exam running and was rounded off by another fun quiz from Murray G6JYB. A big thank-you to Jacky M6OJG and the team in the kitchen.

Some of the Activities:-

Members trying out the club Icom 7300 SDR and some Essex CW advice & radio practice

Bargains and chatter - and Trevor M5AKA our raffle winner!

  • Exams: In parallel our Exam room hosted a very successful Foundation exam in Session-EX9 with Dorothy M0LMR and Richard G7OED as invigilators.
  • The Quiz Fun Teaser Quiz, with Murray G6JYB. This months anagram was "Thin Ice Tat" and included an unusual waterfall display

    Do come and tell us what you would like to see at Skills Night...

    We are here to help, you ask what you need to know.
    NO question is silly question!. We have all been there, just ask?

    Skills does not happen by itself, so we are open to offers for demos etc from both CARS members and other clubs/amateurs.

    If you want a table for a demo do email us beforehand and we will fit you in.

    Skills is a great opportunity to get "hands-on" with aerials, datamodes, construction, our famous Quiz and more. A variety of "show and tell" tables with something for the new and experienced Ham alike.

    As always, various members of CARS, and other local groups/clubs will be on hand to help with questions, as well as volunteers in the kitchen doing the tea/coffee and nibbles.
