WADARC meets at – TS Vanguard, 9a Broadwater Road, Worthing. BN14 8AD
THE PAST WEEK
Last Tuesday, Chris – M0VUE gave an excellent talk on setting up the logging program Log4OM along with its USB interface OmniRig. Even if you already use Log4OM, as I do, there are always new things to learn. We need more of this kind of demonstration, even if they’re treated as a refresher course.
Other discussion took place as well, as Chris has been trying to keep our programme of events on track. As he pointed out, this is almost impossible at times, especially when possible speakers are contacted and they don’t even have the courtesy to reply! We are desperately looking for new speakers – we can’t exist with just tea and chat evenings, however attractive they are to some.
Also last week, Bryan – G0SIU delivered sheets of plywood to be used as crawling boards when accessing antennas. Volunteers moved them onto the roof/balcony area and they’re now ready for Phil and team to be able to work on the antennas. Thanks guys.

We’re probably going to have another outdoor event on a nearby hilltop. Please let me know which hill you prefer, either by direct email or via the WADARC Discuss reflector. Devil’s Dyke has been mentioned – is that too far out for members? It is an excellent VHF spot to the North.
