Crowsheath was the place to be for TARG radio and camping – Part Deux (as we had already had a successful visit there earlier in the year). The weather was a bit on the warm side – hottest Bank Holiday on record, but didn’t deter those who made it from a fun filled few days.

Every 3rd Friday of the month we hold TARGet Nite (hands on radio) – but August was special. Two candidates, both called Andrew, passed their Foundation Licences.

Photo shows Andrew Simkins, 13yrs, with his proud parents so now there are four radio amateurs in the family. Andrew achieved a remarkable score of over 90%. Congratulations.

Raffle Prizes2nd August: Club Presentation

New Foundation Licence recipients, Aubery M7SDA and Steve M7AHT, holding two of the raffle prizes –  kits to eliminate interference. These, and other relevant prizes were generously donated by the evening’s speaker, John M0LFX, where the topic was “Identifying and eliminating RF interference”. Of particular interest was the live demo of how an HF antenna can induce RF noise into a VHF antenna and visa-versa.
