CARS Skills Night August 2014 Reminder

A reminder that this coming Monday, the 18th of August 2014, is the next CARS Skills Night.

From the emails received here, as we’re at the height of the holiday season, a lot of people are away or otherwise not able to attend. As a result, we’re planning to hold over some of the planned demonstrations until future meetings, so that people don’t miss out.

This coming Monday’s event is therefore going to be more of a social get-together than a demonstration-packed evening, with the opportunity to chat and ask questions.

If you’re looking to get hands-on with something, there will be plenty to do though, and here’s what’s planned:

  • Construction workshop: Fast becoming a regular feature. Need help, advice or some soldering practice? Come along
  • Callsign Badges – Fancy getting your own personalised callsign badge? See you Monday!
  • SSTV: As requested on the Monday Night Net, the chance to take a look at the world of SSTV with a rolling demo
  • Antenna Advice – Have a chat to Carl G3PEM about any aspect of antenna modelling, construction and set-up.
  • Essex Repeater Group – Got a question about GB3DA, GB3ER, GB3DB or GB7ZP? Stop off at the ERG’s table
  • Quiz: Test your amateur radio knowledge, just for fun
  • Show-and-tell: All are welcome to bring along any items for show-and-tell

As regular attendees know, the Skills get-togethers are a great opportunity to chat, swap ideas, and get hands-on with something new – All are welcome, regardless of club affiliation, licence and experience levels, and the evenings are generally a good mix of hands-on demonstrations, show-and-tell, and practicals. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout the evening for which a small optional donation towards hall hire would be appreciated.
