 Hi All The Talk by David G6ENN was very informative educational and at times funny I’m sure every one who turned up on the night had a good time, also a big THANKS must go to the gorgeous Isabel for all those fab home made cakes, she once again was the perfect host handing out tea coffee and cakes to all.
Thanks also go to all in attendance for their support throughout 2017.
And Olly make sure you repay that Wife of yours to a slap up meal she deserves a medal for putting up with you and all the work she does for the club so once again THANK YOU Isabel for all your hard work from everyone at KLARC…. p.s check out David G6ENN website it is very informative.

A Big THANKYOU to everyone for their support this year on the clifftops a very cold and breezy clifftop. The day pretty much went without a hitch apart from the odd drop of that wet stuff but all in all a good day was had by all and a massive THANKS must go to Sarah 2E0NRX who kindly kept our spirits up with bacon butties and hot mugs of tea.
Conditions on HF were not brill but VHF was alive and the general public seemed very interested in all the strange goings on and hopefully a few will now have the urge to have a go.

Ofcom has today published guidance to help amateur radio licensees to understand and comply with the terms and conditions of the UK amateur radio licence. This guidance should therefore, be read in conjunction with the licence.
We are aware from member enquires that there are areas of operating practice where further advice may be appreciated, and we are thus proposing to publish some “Best Practice” notes later in the year.
