Meetings

Club 2m Nets now on 145.475MHz
More information...

On the air

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

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 145.550MHz 145.475MHz).

On Mondays when the school is closed and if we are not meeting elsewhere we will try to meet on 2m (also normally on 145.550MHz 145.475MHz) as a pseudo club meeting on the air.

The Thursday evening meeting on the air also starts at 7.30pm (19.30 hours) local time on 145.550MHz 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.

Please note that if 145.550MHz 145.475MHz is busy, we will use the nearest available free channel on 2m. (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)


Bank Holiday Meetings

On Bank Holiday Monday afternoons (from about 1pm to about 4pm) we operate from an elevated location, usually at Crickley Hill Country Park (entrance at grid reference SO936163). Non-members and visitors are welcome to join us, to see what we do and what Amateur Radio is all about. Alternately, if you have a suitable radio, why not listen for our call sign:

G4AYM

Crickley Hill Country Park is about 6 miles (10km) south of Cheltenham, close to the junction of the A417 and A436. From the "Air Balloon" public house and roundabout, which is on the junction, take the A436 which is signed to Oxford. After about 100yards (100m) turn left towards Cheltenham. The entrance to the Country Park is about 300 yards (300m) down the Cheltenham Road on the left. Please note that the Country Park make a charge for parking.

Informal Meeting and General Operating

at Churchdown School

 

We try to have a formal meeting, such as a lecture, on the first Monday in each month that we meet at the school. However, this sometimes changes due to scheduling difficulties with the speaker so please keep an eye on the website. We run operating/construction/informal meetings or DF Hunts on the other Mondays.

These less formal meetings give members a chance to get on the air, do some construction work, just have a good old chin-wag with some old friends, or make some new friends.

We also have rigs and equipment for members to use.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are normally available (for a small charge) at our meetings

Why not join us? Come along and we will make you very welcome.
