In July we had a change from the published programme and instead of a talk we had a social evening with a “Bring & Buy” option. (The talk by Tony G3YYH and Rich M0XRB on their radio visit to France earlier this year has been rescheduled for September.) We were pleased to welcome Surendra G4UEZ to the meeting, he had been a member of CARA when the club met in Charlton Kings – that’s some years ago now! We look forward to seeing him again.
The social evening went well, attendance was good and many members spent much of the time sitting around a table discussing matters of interest, mostly radio related of course! Mike G4GHL stimulated further chat by asking members to air their views about the future of amateur radio. This was popular and may well form the theme, or one of the themes, of November’s meeting – more details later.
A few members brought along radio items for sale and this attracted attention too.
In all, another successful gathering. Great to see so many members taking part in the round table discussion.
