2m CW QSO Party

This replaces the FDARS club net for the 18th OCT.

I'm organising the following event for the 18th October instead.

a 2m CW QSO on the air party.
All  welcome, ideal for beginners who wish to gain a bit of on air Morse experience. 
Tuesday 18 October guideline time is 19:00 -21:30.
Frequency 144.053 - 144.063
Format is relaxed friendly QSO's with meaningful RST report, name , QTH/Rig/Ant details etc  being exchanged. Its not a contest, the aim being to get some local CW activity on the 2m band. Local clubs have been contacted so hopefully there will be a selection of stations of varying experience to work on the air.

Suffolk RED, Wednesday 30 March

The 3rd Suffolk RED Event will take place at Stowupland Village Hall on Weds 30th March. The hall is easy to find, being just over 1 mile north of the A1120 exit from the A14. For SatNav users, the postcode of the Hall is IP14 4BQ
To get to the hall, follow the A1120 north from the junction, and you will see the signs for the village hall and sports centre after 1 mile – the hall is on your left (if you are travelling north!). There is plenty of parking in front of and to the back of the hall.
The events that we have planned so far are:

Cat Control Your Rig
– Steve M1ACB will show how to link your rig to your computer so that, for example, your log program controls the rig frequency/mode etc – or vice versa.
Vector Network Analysers – local RF measurement expert Sam, G4DDK, will be showing how to use these handy devices which are quite readily available now.
Homebrew SDR – George, M1GEO will be showing and demonstrating his mcHF QRP Software Defined Radio transceiver, assembled from kits by M0NKA.
Peter, G0DZB is going to have his
Raspberry Pi bits with him, so any questions or advice you need – he’s your man!
Ever wondered why the
Northern Lights aurorae are also of great interest to amateur radio operators – Paul G4YQC will tell you all about it.
Dave, G4HUP, will be running
Advanced Licence tutorials to help those studying, or intending to study, for the advanced licence exam. He’s also happy to deal with questions or assistance for any other licence level.

And there’s likely to be more……

Thanks to Andre, Michelle and Paul from FDARS who have offered to man the kitchen and look after the teas and coffees…
