Talk by Jim G3RTD

A talk on Tuesday 12th March will be given by Jim G3RTD entitled ‘Small Active Receive Antennas for the Noisey QTH’.

There was a short demonstration of this antenna at the club last year which demonstrated considerable improvements to reception. The talk is highly recommended for those who have a noisy QTH and for those who may wish to explore possible improvements at their own QTH.

Annual Fees 2018-19

Message from the Treasurer, Paul G1SNI

A reminder to those that missed the AGM, the subs are due and remain the same as last year. They are £30.00 (concession £25.00) if you renew/join in April/May/June and pro-rata after that. You can pay by cash or cheque at any club night or if you want to pay by BACS let me know direct to the below email address and I will send you the bank details.

Silent Key Derek G3BVB

It is with sad news that I announce the passing away of Derek G3BVB, a long term member, on 1st November, 2017.

Those who know Derek will remember a real gentleman who was a great asset to the club. Unfortunately the past few years,due to age, he has not been too active at the club but continued on the radio with many of his worldwide contacts.

His funeral will take place on 17th November at the Dorchester Cemetery Chapel at 13:30, if you wish to attend please contact me.
