Collage of photos15th 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.
