On the air


 
Club Evenings
 
The club operates a HF station on club nights depending on member requests and programme for the evening.
 
 
Club Net

2Mtrs.
The club net is held on Sundays. The time is 10.30am local time. Frequency 2mtrs, usually calling on 145.500 QSYing to a channel around 145.275. The net controller will use their own callsign and usually be a committee member, and will control the net. Calling in between overs with your callsign will enable the controller to put you on the list. 
 
The net will usually have a committee member present so that information about club activities can be obtained, this information will normally be given however, for the benefit of any SWLs listening.
 
DX Picnics

These are weekends where the idea is to work radio, free from domestic problems and chores, Camping is optional though members often choose this option as it provides a chance to operate for as long as desired at whatever time of the day or night. The number of members attending provides a chance to sample different operating modes that might not be available to the individual and often a chance to operate other radios.


DX Picnics are sometime arranged to coincide with the club's competition entries. A chance to work as a team during what can be hectic operating events, participation in the competition is optional but highly recommended.

Directions to the picnic site(s) can be found here.


For those who wish, a holiday can be arranged during the summer where radio is available over a longer period.
