Tue22Jun20217.30 for 8.00pmClubhouse & Grappenhall Village
This evening will be the DF Hunt as usually held about this time of year. A similar format to previous events will apply with the 'foxes' hidden around the village. Any form of 2m FM receiver/antenna should suffice but directional is better! A slightly earlier start around 7.30pm is suggested in order to recap the rules(?) and then get started. Walking speed only!
Members of Bury RS are invited to join us for this event and directions etc can be provided should anyone wish to venture over to Warrington.
For members not able to attend this event, Bury RS are hosting a talk on the Nano VNA and WARC members can join this at the usual Bury Zoom ID.

The club annual barbecue will take place on 27 July '21. A start of around 7.30pm is advised to take advantage of the slightly fading daylight hours! We have the options of using the GYCA area as in previous years, or setting up an area by the clubhouse.
Bury RS members are welcome to join us, so please do contact us for directions etc should you wish to come along.
Everyone please note, if lockdown restrictions are not further lifted on 19 July, GYCA will not allow us to go ahead with the barbecue, so please stay in touch with events and we will confirm the go-ahead as soon as possible.
Have you ever thought about making more QSOs over a longer range on VHF? This talk will give you the background on how to achieve that through bouncing your signal off meteor trails. During the talk Gavin will show you how and why Meteor Scatter communications work: what software you should use, how you should use it, and when you should use it.
He’ll also look at what tools are available to help you to maximise your QSO count.
