We had a fabulous time at Bletchley Park today (Sunday, 3rd June 2018) including a visit to the National Radio Centre. So much to see and do.
Saturday, 26th May 2018 saw the first outing of the year for our Big Red Tent when we attended a Family Gala organised by the Doncaster Central branch of the Royal British Legion. Tom, who is currently their Chairman (and also one of our members) asked if we could take along our gazebo and some radios. We never need asking twice! The weather was kind – warm and sunny for a change – and we had a steady stream of visitors throughout the day. We’ll be out doing it all again on 9th June, this time at the Ranskill Scarecrow Festival
We are asking members how they would like to mark the occasion? Suggestions please! sent details to info AT g3rcw.org.uk.
If you were a former or a founder member of the Radio Society, we would love to hear from you – please use the contact us section of the website to get in touch or please come and visit us on a Tuesday or Thursday Evening.
Please find below a copy of Worksop Amateur Radio Societies, Programme from Dec to March (2018).

As per normal, there is a prise or maybe a bounty for anyone who spots the deliberate mistake!

On November 30th 2017, as part of our Amateur Radio Technical Night, the Club has a talk, “SOTA a game of two parts activators and chasing” By Gary M0ONI and Paul M0PJA. Summits on the Air or SOTA is about taking your radio and setting up on a hill top or chasing the Amateurs who do.
M0ONI, is an experienced SOTA Chaser and has gained his Shack Sloth Award, the SOTA Web site says that “”Shack Sloth” status requires considerable dedication and effort and so, trophies can be claimed to mark this significant milestone.”
M0PJA is an experienced Hill Walker who enjoys being able to combine both Hill Walking and Amateur Radio, he even says SOTA is what got his wife interested in Amateur Radio.
