Final results in our Spring Challenge
It was All Modes + All Bands (160m - 70cm) + extra points for Foundation (10W) and Intermediate (50W) operators.

Due to the Coronavirus scare MEETINGS AT THE SCHOOL ARE SUSPENDED until further notice.


Until the school reopens...

Why not join one of our “meetings on the air.”

On Mondays we will try to meet on 2m (normally on 145.475MHz) as a pseudo club meeting on the air.


Tuesday evening is 2m Amplitude Modulation (AM) night. Meet at 8.30pm on 144.550MHz AM

Every Wednesday evening at 7.30pm (19.30 hours) local time we hold our club net. We call on 145.500MHz and then move to a free channel (normally 145.475MHz).

The Thursday evening meeting on the air also starts at 7.30pm (19.30 hours) local time on 145.475MHz but this is more of an experimenters meeting and is likely to move onto an HF band or elsewhere depending on what the participants want to do. It will always stay on 2m for at least 15 minutes though.

All times are UK clock times

Please note that if the stated channel is busy, we will use the nearest available free channel (bearing in mind that some of our members may have equipment that uses 25KHz channel spacing).

Friday evening 70cm Net at 7.30pm (19.30 hours) local time on 432.220MHz SSB. Most participants use Vertical Polarised aerials. Hosted by Dave (G4BCA)

and now...

Daytime Gatherings, every day on 2m

The idea is not to have a formal net like the other nets, but to just put a call out during the times below to see if there is anyone around who would like a chat. There will be no 'net controller' but if things get chaotic hopefully a leader will emerge!

  • Suggested frequency: 145.475 MHz FM, if occupied try 145.575 MHz.
  • Times: Virtual Coffee Morning 11:00 - 12:00 local time, every day including weekends.
  • Virtual Afternoon Tea: 15:00 - 16:00 local time, again every day.

This, of course, does not preclude members working each other at other times and on other frequencies and bands! Keep a log of your activities as we will be introducing some sort of 'Worked All Club Members' activity as part of the Spring Challenge. (Watch this space).
