What's been happening this year

4th January Raynet operators from the club once again attended the Fingle Bridge motor event, providing radio commuications for the event stewards. This annual event consisted of 3 separate hill climbs involving about 200 motorcycles & vintage cars.
Some years ago this event sadly suffered a fatality on one of the hill climbs. Emergency services could not be contacted quickly enough using conventional communication systems, mainly because of the terrain.
The Raynet team setup comms. using mainly VHF with VHF/UHF crossband repeaters.



22nd January The club welcomed two newcomers, Colin and Eric. Colin is already licensed (G0ODL ?), but Eric has joined to learn how to become a radio operator, and train and take the foundation exam later this year. Wes 2E0WZR, Jordan 2E0WLQ and Rob 2E0UJM will be working towards gaining the full license, and Giles M7MTG will be working towards his Intermediate.
Other topics discussed included preperation for the Raynet event (Vintage cars) at Exbridge.
Pete G3ZVI showed us a homebrew headset (An Xbox boom mic with earphone) and remote (footswitch) PTT for his handheld devices.
We also welcomed back long time member Bas G0FGE, who had taken time out preparing for his dream job.....Retirement.
