Some 15 people attended the CARA Summer Garden Party on Sunday 25th August kindly hosted by Rosemary and Ken G3XSJ at their delightful QTH near Wotton-under-Edge. The gathering was blessed by warm and sunny weather and plenty of excellent food. So a good time was had by all. Our grateful thanks go to Rosemary and Ken for their generous hospitality.
As usual, our August meeting is a Natter Night with a theme. This year members are invited to bring along equipment relating to data-comms modes to put on tables for display and for demonstration if so desired.
We look forward to seeing, among other things, computer-radio interface units and laptops running data-modes programmes. Paul M0UTC has kindly agreed to bring along his mobile set-up and demonstrate PSK31 and may be DRM (digital pictures) – regarding the latter, he asks if another member could set-up a DRM station in the building so that pictures could be exchanged between the two of them. Any offers please?
Come along and chat to other club members, introduce yourself to our newer members and enjoy the displays and demonstrations. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available as usual.
The meeting will take place on Thursday 15th August, 7.30 for 8pm at the Brizen Young People’s Centre, Up Hatherley Way, between Morrison’s and the Shurdington Road, Visitors and prospective members will be made welcome, as always.
