    June Meeting
    Mon 18-Jun-2018, 7.30-10pm
    Danbury Village Hall, Main Road, CM3 4NQ
    "Table Top Sale"
    By CARS Members

    In order to assist with construction and recycling, the June meeting is the CARS Radio and Electronics Tabletop Sale, coordinated by Secretary Colin G0TRM.

    Just as in past years we have no idea what gems will turn up at a CARS TT sale and this year will be the same. Generally items for sale cover the whole range of radio, electronics, visual and audio, mechanical interest and more, much more.

    Looking for a particular rig or maybe just a connector for it? Maybe it's a special power supply you need; you could well find it at a CARS TT Sale. Perhaps you will find the rig you sold two years ago and wish you hadn't. Due to a minor rationalisation of CARS equipment and a number of bequests some fully functional items will be on offer.

    You will doubtless see just what you did not know you needed, you are sure to find something to send you home with a smile on your face... and the vendors. So don't miss our next event on 18th June starting at 7.30pm. Contact Colin G0TRM now for more information.

    Lots of your own stuff to sell? then book a table with Colin Page, G0TRM


  • The Sale is in the Main Hall - whilst Essex Skills Night starts earlier at 7pm in the Small Hall and is free to attend
  • Items are brought/sold as seen - neither CARS or Danbury Village Hall can accept responsiblity

    July Meeting
    Tue 3-Jul-2018, 7.30-10pm
    Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street
    "Three Short Talks"
    By CARS Members

    Our 'Three Short Talks' format returns this year with a variety of enlightening topics:-

    • Using Fibre Glass Antenna Poles - Mark M0IEO
    • Flying High - Peter Bridgeman G3SUY
    • Planning - Peter M0PSD
    So this year all three have some connection with antennas - but each one is very different! From getting planning permission or using fibre glass poles, to sky high HF kites - we expect to cover a lot of ground (and sky).

    Our famous prize raffle and refreshments will also be on offer

    Missed it?...

    CARS Meeting Place

    CARS meet on the First Tuesday in the month at the Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 9AQ.

    We meet on the First Floor. There is a lift for wheel chairs. Doors open at 7pm for 7.30pm start. Please identify yourself when you sign in and purchase a Raffle Ticket or two for Club Funds.  Tea/Coffee/Biscuits is available at 9pm break time.  There is normally no admission fee to CARS Meetings - Visitors are always welcome.  The Raffle is drawn after the refreshment interval.

    Meetings end at 10pm, as the gates will be locked at 10.15pm!

    Oaklands Museum, Chelmsford.

    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.
