National Mills Weekend 2018
Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May 2018
Practical time again
In the clubroom, come try out your frequency meter. Jack will bring his off air standard. Make sure you arrive in good time to let your meter stabilise as most take some time to warm up.
Meanwhile, outside - assuming the weather is good - it's practice time. In June there will be a 2 metre walking DF hunt around the village so some and make sure your kit works in the car park.
Oh, and as usual, get some practice in in the shack
Planning - A look at coming events updates from the recent Committee Meeting’
It's fox hunt time.
Meet at the club house, there will be two stations to find somewhere in the village. So this is a walking DF hunt.
Both stations will be on 2m.

The 2018 144MHz QRP Contest will take place on Sunday 10th June 2018.
So pop to the bar, grab a drink and have a natter in the clubhouse. No talk this evening - natternight
Ok - it's DF hunt time again
As per last time, we'll be hiding in Grappenhall. Come and find us. Two stations, same channel, 2 metres.
Lessons learnt from last time
- close in on foot the signals can be large - attenuators help. Will drop the power down more after 30 minutes
- we should probably pick a quieter frequency - will announce that at 8pm in 145.450 - we'll either be there or will announce a change in frequency

Ron asked could we have another go at meter measurement - and this time he's offered to tabulate all the results trying to check each range...
Also, we'll try to organise the solder hands on session (well, metaphorically speaking)
