    It would help if you come prepared with a short topic of your choice on which to speak.
    However if this leaves you with a blank here are some thoughts to help you.
    Introduce yourself to the club your name and call are good for starters.
    When did you join the club and what were your reasons for joining at that time??
    How well have your initial joining objectives been fulfilled? What are you looking for in a radio club today? How well does WARC meet your present day requirements.
    What aspect of radio and electronics interests you most. Expand on this.

    Would you describe yourself as active in radio or just passively interested?
    Any thoughts for the future?

    10:00 Hooton Park Ellesmere Port

    aeroplane_new_gif

    RAF Hooton Park, on the Wirral Peninsula, Cheshire, was a Royal Air Force station originally built    for the Royal Flying Corps in 1917 as a training aerodrome for pilots in World War I. During the early/mid-1930s, it was one of the two airfields (with Liverpool Speke) handling scheduled services for the Merseyside region. Hooton Park was home to No. 610 (County of Chester) Squadron and, post World War II, to No. 611 (West Lancashire) and No. 663 (AOP) Squadron. The airfield closed in 1957 on the disbandment of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force, but the three pairs of Belfast Truss hangars erected in 1917 survived the closure. The site was bought byVauxhall Motors, who built their Vauxhall Ellesmere Port plant there, which today produces the Vauxhall Astra. A small remaining section of the airfield site is now owned and managed by The Hooton Park Trust. The hangars are also home to The Griffin Trust and 'The Aeroplane Collection.'

    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

    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

    1. close in on foot the signals can be large - attenuators help. Will drop the power down more after 30 minutes
    2. 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

    ...M0XPD

    Drawing on music, detective fiction, bellringing and electronics, Paul, m0xpd, will describe his recent fun and games with the new type of ‘Step Sequencer’ which he has been developing, based upon some 400 year old permutations. Sequencers are simple state machines, similar to the ‘keyers’ familiar in amateur radio, which produce repeated patterns. These devices are widely used in the production and performance of contemporary music. Ignoring the old advice about never working with children and animals, Paul will attempt to interrupt his talk with some noisy demonstrations
