Bring & Buy Clubnight - 3rd April

3rd April will be a special bring & buy event, the idea is you bring all the stuff you want to get rid of, some money, and you go home with different stuff. Plus the usual rag-chew in good company of course.

RSGB Contesting

Why not have a go at one of the RSGB contests? There are regular contests on the VHF bands. Registering your results is quite easy and will gain the club some valued points in the league tables. Contest dates are posted in the club diary on the left.

Membership Cards

Following payment of membership at the AGM (or around that time) a couple of people have mentioned to me that they need a Membership card.

If this is the case, please could you send me a recent photo of yourself to membership AT Mkars.org.uk and I'll get one made up in the next few weeks.

Club Meetings

As per the agreement at the AGM, club meetings now have  a donation of £1 per person.

Could we also ask everyone to sign in please. It helps  committee with numbers and membership.
