Following our break for the summer, Skills Night returned on the 17th September with 42 attending. The evening featured DMR with Perry 2E0XPD, D-Star with Chris 2E0CUU, Jim Salmon 2E0RMI was demonstrating Echolink, Pauline 2E0EUH was manning the Table-top sale and CARS Membership renewals, and the EssexCW Team was their making contacts both home and abroad.

The evening also saw the first of our new Exam Sessions (EX1), where two Intermediate candidates took their exams and it was pleased to say they passed. Well done to Jamie M6LZI and Craig M6OZC, and we all look forward to knowing what their new call signs are. Intermediate Practical’s were also taking place in the Hawkins Room for two visitors from Colchester. These are booked in for the next Exam Session (EX2) on the 15th October

To finish off we had a very entertaining Fun Quiz by Murray G6JYB

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 have something to demonstrate/show or wish to book a table for the tabletop sale, please email: training2018 (at) or give Peter M0PSD a call on 07747 130777

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.
