TARGet Nite: 21st Feb

Another well attended gathering. In one corner was preparation for the talk in April about Power Supplies. In another corner was an explanation of resister colour codes. In the middle was a homemade CW generator. And in by the window was Andrew M0ONH (photo) demonstrating the reality of having a conventional phone connected by digital nodes in an amateur radio equivalent of the internet (see UKmesh.org).

Protective ClothingFeb Presentation: Bee Keeping

Once a year we have a non-radio talk. This time it was “Our First Year in Bee Keeping” by Mark M0IEO and Belinda M6JNX. The interest was palpable with many questions when, on other occasions, we would have been queuing up for tea, or heading for the hills. A fascinating insight and goes to show that there is more to amateur radio enthusiasts than a rubber stamp QSO.

TARG at Canvey Rally

On Sunday 2nd Feb the Radio Hamming community descended to the famous “Canvey Rally”. TARG were there representing the club with our banner drawing attention to the table where there was an informative rolling Power Point of all we do and leaflets with the updated agenda for 2020. This was a good opportunity to meet with members from other clubs around the region and to catch up on tech old and new.
