2015-01-09_Cake demo Here is the latest update from Radcom. The picture of Huw 2E0HTL and Lez 2E0LEZ was taken at the close of their opening presentation as a tribute to our XYLs for regularly providing members with fabulous cakes and refreshments.


Following a very successful project building day in 2014 the south Essex based Thames Amateur Radio Group has launched TARGet Nite in keeping with member requests. This extra club night, held on the 3rd Friday each month, mentors in amateur radio practice and encourages the art of homebrew. These events cater for all ages and skill levels. Leading construction enthusiasts Huw 2E0HTL and Lez 2E0LEZ will be ably supported by the rest of the Groups successful training team, who collectively have decades of experience in the electronics, radar and communication industries.

Our first TARGet Nite will be on Friday 20th February starting at 7.30pm at the Club Venue.

Partial Solar Eclipse Experiment10361267_1437452719879247_4167689013385155581_n

On Friday 20 March 2015 a partial solar eclipse will be visible from the UK. The path of totality will pass north of the UK, but we’ll experience up to 89% totality (depending on where you live).

As part of British Science Week, the Society has prepared a simple experiment using a portable medium wave radio and we’re encouraging schools to get involved. The results will be shared with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and will also be published in RadCom.
If you are a radio amateur, short wave listener or have more advanced equipment, we have also offered ways in which you could take the experiment further. You’ll find more information and a pdf outline of the experiment on our website: www.rsgb.org/eclipse-2015
