January 2015 Meeting

By | 22nd June 2015

Our first meeting of the New Year was on Tuesday January 6th. Our president. Carl G3PEM gave a talk about radio amateur awards The last time CARS had such a talk was about 10 years ago, so this was a long overdue for a reminder.

Carls talk
Carl brought along slides and a wide variety of background material and awards to illustrate another branch of this fascinating hobby of ours

DARC 40m Award – rather unusual – it is etched in copper!

Topics included: How to start collecting awards and where to find details of the award programmes. Organising QSL cards and electronic logging can help matters!

You can get awards based on Regions or other geographic features
DXCC – one of the premier awards

Despite the winter weather and cold bugs, a good evening was had by those who attended – many thanks Carl.
