Skills Night

As you’ve hopefully heard by now, the Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society is holding the first Amateur Radio Skills Night tomorrow – Monday the 20th of January. This will be held at the Danbury Village Hall, starting from 7pm

This will be an opportunity to come along, ask questions, try something new and share your experiences with others. The first event will be an informal meet-and-greet social event, with tea, coffee and biscuits. All are welcome, there’s no charge, and you don’t need to be a CARS member.

Monday Night Net for 20th January

For this Monday, the 20th of January, there will be no Net, as we’re all at Danbury for a face-to-face net (see above)! We hope to pop up from time to time on Monday though, as we’ll have access to GB3DA from the venue, so if you can’t make it, try to join us on-air from 8pm.
