February 5th – Club Night – Health & Safety with Fred Philips 2E0FRE.

And what delights have we got for you this month I hear you ask? Well this month we are delving into the world of Health & Safety with Fred Philips 2E0FRE.
What has Health & Safety got to do with amateur radio I hear you say. Do we need Hi Vis jackets to operate radios? Well maybe there are times we do, but there are a lot of other ways in which Health & Safety impact our hobby, we are all told to look at what is above us before we put our antennas up, but do you ever think about what could be underneath you when you bang in that angle iron stake to tie the antenna to?
So, why not come along to Jubilee hall on Friday evening and listen to what Fred has to say. Fred has worked within public sector lighting for many years and is a qualified Health & Safety instructor. Fred is also the newest member of TARG to join the committee with a special emphasis on Health & Safety within the club, so when we go out on field days we are doing so secure in the knowledge that we are doing it safely booth for ourselves and for the members of the public we come into contact with.

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

    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.
