THE PAST WEEK
Last Tuesday was a Tea and Chat night. Work continued in the shack to install the new Tambour Doors and they are now functional but not yet lockable. Bryan, G0SIU will be bringing his router to the next meeting to rout a groove for the lock plate and Graham and Roger should be fitting the pelmet and doing some partition work. It’s really good progress as observed by those who left their seats last week to pass through the Shack for a quick look.
Tomorrow (Tuesday 17th) is the Christmas Party at Casa Ciro. Please bring any donations of raffle prizes to the restaurant on the night. No club meeting at TS Vanguard.
There will be a Christmas Eve net run by Phil, G4UDU at 9.30pm on 80 metres – 3.712MHz +- QRM.
There will also be a Christmas Day 2 metre between 11.00am and 12.00pm on S21 – 145.525MHz
