PLEASE NOTE: Due to the recent inclement weather, this year’s Christmas Party has been cancelled. Please see this post for more details.
This Wednesday, 6th December, we are very fortunate to be able to welcome Jason Bull, M0JPB, the West Midlands Regional Co-ordinator for RAYNET-UK to give a presentation to our group outlining the work that RAYNET-UK does.
Please see our earlier post about this visit (below) and we hope to see you on Wednesday.
On 6th December, MARS shall be welcoming Jason Bull, M0JPB, the West Midlands Regional Co-ordinator for RAYNET-UK to give a presentation to our group outlining the work that RAYNET-UK does.
Since 1953, RAYNET have been providing emergency communications using volunteer radio amateurs in situations varying from natural disasters and major incidents to safety communications for large-scale community events. If there is sufficient interest and demand, we may consider forming our own RAYNET group in the near future.
All are welcome – members and non-members – and the presentation shall begin at 19:00 on Wednesday 6th December. Non-members are requested to make a small contribution of £2 towards the cost of the facilities.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that nothing is happening at MARS after browsing this site but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We have recently finished teaching an Intermediate Level course with a number of students having already passed the exam and have their 2E0 callsigns. We’ve had Foundation Level exam passes, video nights, impromptu presentations and much more.
If you have been thinking of visiting us to join in the fun or just find out more about amateur radio, please come along on any Wednesday evening where we guarantee a warm welcome. Please see www.midlandars.org.uk/meetings for more information on times and where to find us.
On 14th December at 7pm, MARS is holding its annual Christmas Party at the Club HQ. All members are welcome – past and present – as well as anyone who is interested in joining the club whether you are already licensed or looking to get your Foundation Licence.
A grand buffet will be offered and all we ask is that everyone brings a selection of party food to add to it. Please note however that alcohol is not permitted on the premises.
We hope to see you there!
