    There are apparently 637 operators signed up worldwide, one of which is Warrington ARC – with thanks to Mike.

    You can read more about it here: https://www.qsl.net/va3rj/uploads/world_wide_award_2024_rules.pdf

     

    The club HF station is configured ready to go.  We’ve signed up for 4 slots initially –

    • Thursday 4th January AM
    • Sunday 7th January PM
    • Thursday 18th January AM
    • Sunday 21st January PM

     So if you come along to the coffee morning or Solder Sunday on those days you can help operate the station (or just drink tea and watch)

    We can easily sign up for other days/slots/modes/bands should members want to operate at other times – just let Dave (G8KBB) know.

    Have you pick one of these little handheld 2m / 70cm radios up yet?  Cheap and ultra "hackable", they are a great and highly usable transceiver.  Various firmware upgrades available and even comes with AM airband receive and a waterfall display.

    Dave (G8KBB) takes a look at the least expensive radio you'll probably ever own.

    As I am sure many are aware OFCOM this week updated the terms of our licences, giving more scope to enjoy the hobby.  James will be giving us a brief talk on what has changed for all 3 licence levels, what has come into effect immediately and what will be changing in the near future.  I sure there will be a discussion following this and an opportunity to ask any questions, so definitely one not to be missed if possible.

    Join Dave (BCU) as he gives us this weeks talk on Fourier Transform.

    "Fourier Transform is a mathematical model which helps to transform the signals between two different domains, such as transforming signal from frequency domain to time domain or vice versa." - copied from Google 🙂

    Should be a great recap for some of us and something new to be learned for others - either way, should be a great informative topic.

    Join us in the club room if possible for a practical evening on setting up the LARA module, both building an antenna and setting up the hardware and if time allows, looking at the mesh side of these robust devices.  If this is something that you haven't done yet and want to try, let us know and we will point you in the right direction to get the hardware ready to build it on the night also.
