Training Success Stories

Nov-2017: Radio Communication Badge

After receiving an invitation to help a pack of cubs (1st Woodham Ferrers Hyde Cub Pack) to complete their communicators badge, Jim Salmon 2E0RMI, Bob Tokley G4MDB, Kristian Baker M0SSK and Peter M0PSD went to the pack meeting on Tuesday 14th November in South Woodham Ferrers.

We arrived at 6.30 armed with handhelds, a Morse Trainer, Slim Jim, training CQ sheets and copies of the Morse code and were greeted by 20 Cubs and their Akela.

The Slim Jim was suspended from the rafters of the hut. The enthusiasm of the cubs was great. They all had a go at the Morse trainer, tapping out S-O-S, before having a go on the handhelds.

A call was put out on the repeater GB3DA and Steve G8UDD, responded, allowing each cub in turn to make a contact. We wish to thank Steve G8UDD for all his help and Kristian M0SSK who was busy taking lots of photos, some of which have been forwarded for their scrapbook. At the end we presented them with a certificate certifying they had used the radio.

Dec-2017: Morse Key Trainer

Following the previous visit to 1st Woodham Ferrers Hyde cub pack to help them with their Communicator Badge, CARS Chairman Peter M0PSD and club photographer Kristian M0SSK went along to the cubs Christmas party on Wednesday December 13th to present to them a Morse Key Trainer. The club has also been invited to two further cub packs to help with their Communicator Badges.
