  • 12th August: Antenna Construction Workshop. Book via Mark M0IEO.
  • October: Extra Intermediate Course

15th July: The most well attended Field Day so far this year at Two Tree Island, near Leigh-on-Sea. 20+ visitors over the course of the day that started with a BBQ and got hotter as the day progressed. The idea was to arrive early, lay radials on the mud so that, for HF, when the tide came in the salt water would help with propagation.

The next major field day will be on 1st and 2nd Sept in Wat Tyler Country Park for GB2MFM. 

11th July: The postman brought a special issue of RadCom this month with a double page article in their Technical Section about TARG’s Satellite Field Day at Hadleigh Country Park led my Mark M0IEO. 

Nigel M0ICH took the photos and wrote the article over the following weekend; and Pat G8JLM  submitted it to Radcom along with our regular club updates. Hopefully it will generate some interest in this aspect of the hobby. 


6th July. Visit to TARG by the new RSGB Region 12 representative Peter Onion  G0DZB. The presentation was in two parts; where we are at and discussion on where to go next. 

A lively debate followed where TARG demonstrated we welcome hams who are members of more than one club; and that TARG training often includes people from around the country with no obligation to join : it is all about the hobby.

15th June:

A busy TARGet Nite (3rd Fri) with 15 visitors involved with a number of projects taking place at the same time.

DMR is the favourite at the moment with questions around this convenient, mostly hand-held, mode of operating (top photo – Jacky M6OJG and Belinda M6JNX)

There was a discussion on Clansman, and a white board explanation of propagation. In another corner was construction and conversion of a power supply – with good advice about learning from club members with technical knowledge to share. 

As a bonus, a special 1-2-1 for Russell (lower photo, right) to have his Foundation Practical assessments including Morse (with Huw M0LHT) and putting together and operating a base station with Mark M0IEO.
