Meanwhile elsewhere, there was success in Exam Session EX2 as two Intermediate Candidates took their exam and now have their new call signs:- Lukasz 2E0OMK and Marcin 2E0ONM

The Fun Quiz from Murray G6JYB had a lot of pictorial clues and once again managed to get peoples brains working overtime. It is surprising what can be learnt by the Q&A!. Unfortunately Jim 2E0RMI was unable to be there because of the birth of his Grandson Hope all are well and we send our Congratulations & Best Wishes

And as always a big thank you for the refreshment team for their hard work in keeping everyone happy and refreshed. Also a big thank you to Jamie's 2E0EYG wife Tracey for the lovely cakes especially the large Victoria sponge. A good social and informative evening was had by all.

Do come and tell us what you would like to see at Skills Night...

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 want a table for a demo do email us beforehand and we will fit you in.

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.

Next Event: Monday 19-Nov-2018

Venue: Danbury Village Hall, CM3 4NQ
