September Foundation Training

The weekend of September 24th & 25th saw the latest Thames Amateur Radio Group Foundation Licence Training Courses. With four candidates attending, (it should have been five but unfortunately one candidate had to postpone for personal reasons) it was the normal 08:30 meet up for a 09:00 start. Full Story at September Foundation Training


November 4th – Club Night


73 from the TARG Team and see you on Friday.

Come along and enjoy the fun, catch up with friends and make new ones.

October 7th Club Night

A very brief introduction into data modes – A Time to Panic and run to the hills – By Huw 2E0HTL

This month we have Huw 2E0HTL who is going to tell you about one such mode. Some of you may already be using PSK31, but for those who don’t use it, it can be a godsend in the long dark autumn evenings. Huw will take you through setting up your station for PSK31 and what you need to be a successful operator on the mode. You can learn how to use the macro facility which is attached to the Ham Radio Deluxe version of PSK31 which will save you from having to type out in long hand all the information you will need to exchange.

TARGet Nite

TARGet Nite has been postponed until after the summer break.

Whatever your aim is – we will try to make it our TARGet.

New for this year, Morse Classes and Mentoring for those wishing to take their Full Licences.

Construction has been suspended for the duration of the Holiday Period

All levels catered for in a friendly, helpful atmosphere with experienced constructors on hand to help.

Please come and support the evening, you will be made most welcome, after all you are only a stranger once.

TARG Net – held on GB3DA at 20:00 hrs

Every Friday Evening when there is no Club or TARGet Nite

    I just wanted to say a very big Thank You to all the trainers and support team who were involved in the recent Intermediate Course. Your hard work that made it a very memorable and enjoyable event.

    I’m aware that some have commented on the extravagant catering arrangements of the TARG. Well it works for me, radio, good company and excellent food. The club should be listed on the Best of Essex website.

    Once again Thank You.
