Breaking News....New Location, Club Activities and Shack Nights

Breaking News.....From January 2019

New Club Location

We have now moved forward with our plans for relocating the Club to more suitable premises, and from January 2019 most of our meetings will be upstairs at the Irish Centre (Manor Fields, Watling Street, Bletchley, MK2 2HX).

New Meeting Schedule & Club Diary

We are also changing our meeting schedule.  Our club meetings from January 2019 will be on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month. This helps to avoid the impact of public holidays on our meetings programme. All meeting will start at 19.30.

A full programme is shaping up for the year ahead, and dates, locations and speakers etc are all detailed on the Club’s diary page. (See column to the left of this page.). 
Please note that one meeting is being held in February at the NRC, so we will occasionally be back at Bletchley Park.

Shack Nights - the 3rd Monday of each Month

Until we have a shack established at the Irish Centre (expected sometime in the spring), TS Invincible at Bletchley Park has kindly agreed that we can still use our shack there.

From January 2019 we will regularly have a monthly shack night on the 3rd Monday of each month. Come along and operate our station (GB2BP), discuss operating technique, and ask questions about CW, HF and digital operations.

Arrangements For November/December 2018

We still remain at TS Invincible at Bletchley Park for November and December 2018.

We have the following meetings planned - all at 19.30: 

26th November - a GB2BP Shack night in the TS Invincible shack. 

3rd December - Xmas Mince Pies & waffle (chat!) Night coupled with a radio video presentation - TS Invincible.

17th December - a GB2BP Shack Night in the TS Invincible shack.
