Very busy evening with 7 activities taking place both upstairs and downstairs at the hall.  The emphasis is on “practical radio”, especially repairs and demonstration of new equipment for example; John M0LFX, has developed a portable HF base for a Firestick and ground radials which will be featured in the April newsletter. Photo shows Juan’s Go Box, see News Page where we have featured three topics with links.

2nd March – A life long present

Photo of Simon and SteveSteve, G0EUH, met TARG at Canvey Rally and sponsored his daughter, Sarah, to sit the foundation Exam which, by good fortune, was only two weeks away. Inspired by his wife’s success, Sarah’s husband, Simon, also wanted a licence and passed four weeks after the Rally! So, within the space of one month, Dad’s generosity and the candidates hard work there are now three licence holders in the family. What a great present.
