Meeting 07.12.16

This meeting was mainly taken up by discussion on the new web site & forum, members were given another tour of the site and some further alterations were suggested which have yet to be implemented. Members were encouraged to look out images etc for inclusion on the site and also to join the forum and get chatting on line as well as on the air.

We welcomed Rab GM0LQY to his first meeting along with his granddaughter Amy who is showing an interest in becoming a licensed amateur, Rab is returning to the hobby after a break.

Lastly we also set a provisional meeting plan for the first quarter of next year, more on this as it’s finalised.

We welcome any licensed amateurs & SWL’s to join the forums¬†and get involved.

Meeting 16.11.16

At tonight’s meeting Tam & Ken gave members an insight into the workings of the ATC communications training. By all accounts the training & knowledge required to pass each section (Blue, Bronze, Silver & Gold) is quite substantial and can take around 18 months to complete. It is through this route that some Cadets elect to take the RA Foundation licence exam.

Next meeting is at Thornton on 23rd Nov @ 19.30
