    By CARS Members

    On Tuesday October-6 it's AGM time once again! This is your opportunity to hear our progress over the year and to vote for your choice of both new and standing members of the Committee, as well as some updates to the CARS Constitution. There will be the annual reports from the Club's officers, and presentations for 'The Amateur of the Year Award', certificates for the Construction Competition and the 'M1FDE Shield'

    In addition to reports and elections, there will be an opportunity to discuss suggestions for future events and overall running of the Society. After the break there will of course be the usual much renowned CARS raffle organised by Carl PEM. Following which, John DET will give another of his outstanding pictorial presentations covering CARS activities during 2015 and much more.

    • Thinking of joining the CARS committee?
    • Would you like to help in planning the Club's future activities?
    • Are you good at helping organise public events?
    • Do you have a 'special interest' you would like to introduce to CARS?
    At the next meeting, members will have the opportunity to stand for election and put their ideas into practice. Please contact a committee member or Secretary Colin G0TRM (before the day).

    November Meeting
    Tuesday 3rd November 2015, 7:30-10pm
    Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street, CM2 9AQ
    5MHz NVIS Propagation
    Marcus Walden G0IJZ

    With the 2015 World Radio Conference (WRC-15) in progress, the November meeting will be a highly topical talk on 5MHz by Marcus Walden G0IJZ. Near Vertical Incidence Skywave (NVIS) is a key feature of 5MHz, that can give regional communications for emergencies and other applications when other HF bands/conditions may be unsuitable. Marcus has written some key papers on the topic, in support of Amateur Radio's effort to achieve a successful outcome at WRC.

    After the break there will of course be the famous CARS raffle

    Following the AGM, you will also have an opportunity to renew their subs - or you can now pay online

    Directions / Parking

  • Click here to find two maps for Oaklands Museum

    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.
