WADARC meets at – TS Vanguard, 9a Broadwater Road, Worthing. BN14 8AD.
THE PAST WEEK
For last Tuesday’s meeting, some fool decided to give a talk on Front Panel Design! I hope it may have been of use to some members and maybe spurred you on to make your own project, with a well-made box to put it in. As I pointed out, you can make your own from raw materials, or you can take the expensive route and have a company do all the cutting, drilling and finishing for a really professional looking job.
One thing that my talk did prove is that we can connect a laptop to the projector and it all works well.
We have a committee meeting on Wednesday 13th and of course progress on the new shack will be discussed. Chris, M0VUE has volunteered to assemble a new programme of meetings/events for WADARC, so if you have any favourite suggestions, please email Chris or one of the committee.

It can’t have gone unnoticed that club nets are not nearly as well patronised as they used to be. On HF this may partly be due to lack of interest as a part of the bottom of the sunspot cycle, but surely this can’t be the greatest part? Sure, signals come and go, but surely that’s part of the challenge. On VHF/UHF we can’t blame sunspots, so where is everybody? C’mon people, give it a try and renew old on-air friendships. A list of club nets appears in every Weekly Bulletin, just scroll up!
