There’s a social side to Amateur Radio too. This year, the SADARS Christmas dinner was held on December 17th at Cinnabar in the Old Town High Street Thanks to Tom Miller and others for organising and to Rob for the photos below.
National Field day was busy this year. Report to follow. Some photos below courtersy of Denis M0RLO.
A number of club members took part in a 2metre contest over the weekend
The top of the mast i.e. the beam was at 490 ft above sea level.
We tried to hear or work G8W but could not which was sad, although a few stations in Kent and Sussex and France were worked. Some of the participants and the station are shown below.
SADARS has recommenced training candidates interested to take the Foundation and Intermediate Licence Exams.
Getting started: the Foundation licence
To begin transmitting on amateur radio you need to pass a simple multiple-choice test called the Foundation exam.
Contact us to apply for and take your Foundation exam, plus information about fees and training. The club has registered trainers and assessors.
Already an amateur?
Why not step up to a higher power licence?
Stevenage and District ARS trainers and assessors can help you with the next step: the Intermediate Licence. You will need to have passed the Foundation exam to take the Intermediate exam.
In due course we hope to offer Advanced Exam training.
