Topics for the evening as follows:

  • Digital Radio Switchover – Looks like there’s now no date for a forced FM switchover
  • CARS Amateur Radio Skills – A big topic for tonight, and thanks for the very positive comments. We’re looking at the first workshop being held on Monday the 20th of January, and we’d love to see as many of you there as possible. If you want to get updates on the Skills sessions, please register your email address on the following site: www.hamskills.co.uk
  • QRZ – Just what is that number in brackets after “Lookups” – Unique lookups, perhaps?
  • What makes a good shack snack? Thank to Tony G6EEE for suggesting aniseed balls – with care, these can last for 3 JT65 QSOs!
