July Meeting
Date: Thursday 18th July, 7.30 for 8pm.

It’s a “let’s get on-the-air” evening! Please bring along your mobile or portable, or even hand-held, equipment and set up in the car-park. Demonstrate or simply display your station for the benefit of fellow club members and hopefully make a QSO or three. If the weather is wet then we can do the same indoors perhaps bringing long lengths of coax to feed the antennas outside.
