Skills Night - Sep-2017
Monday evening, 7pm Sept 18th 2017, is Essex Skills Night.
- But with a new slant...
This autumn sees Skills return for an experimental 3-month period - that depends on you!
Amateur Radio Skills Sessions (or Workshops) as they were first called, started in January 2014 with a major aim to carry on where formal training ended. Its popularity over the past four years means that the recipe is certainly appreciated, but nowadays mainly for an experienced audience. Results from the March 2017 online survey has also provided some food for thought, so following a break over the summer we have a couple of new recipes to both ease the organisational burden and to freshen up the offerings…
Starting Monday Sept-18 it will be purely up to you, like all attendees, to offer something new - whilst still having a good time!
What we are looking for...
Show/tell Demos Hands-on (setting up radios, modes, construction etc) Other Local clubs giving demos/info Newer amateurs looking for answers Getting started info for would-be amateursWhat we are not… Bring and buy, auctions Junk boxes
So future content and success is 100% down to you! ` ` (Otherwise it will be socialising without helpful radio content)
If you want a table for a demo do email us beforehand and Peter M0PSX will do his best to fit you in - but please be certain, as we only have so many tables
Meanwhile our thoughts on addressing other skills/training gaps may well see a whole new series of sessions that complement the very successful online Foundation course, so there are more regular opportunities for practicals and exams in 2018 - more on that in due course!
As always, various members of CARS, Essex RAYNET, Essex Repeater Group, Essex CW Club and Essex Ham will be on hand to help with questions as well as volunteers in the kitchen doing the tea/coffee and nibbles.
Venue: Danbury Village Hall, CM3 4NQ
Skills Night takes place at the Danbury Village Hall – Entrance is free, and the event is open to all. Tea/coffee is also available.
