At NARC we cater for a wide variety of interests within the hobby of Amateur Radio and our membership ranges from complete beginners to those experienced in operating and building electronic equipment.
Beginners have the opportunity to participate in courses run by NARC for all three licence levels. The Social aspect of the club is thriving with family events such as Radio by the Seaside and Radio Active weekend, NARC also operates in various contests and in the last two years we have won the RSGB Club Championships on 80m.
We have a comprehensive club programme running throughout the year, the complete list can be seen on the diary page. We also try to cater for youngsters with our "Bright Sparks" evenings when we dedicate an evening to assist the younger members in construction and operating techniques. We offer club trips and also run the annual Barford Radio Rally which falls on July 6th 2014.
We have a shack at NARC which has HF, 6M , 2M and 70cm along with laptop for data modes and CW on HF along with D-STAR on 70cm the shack is open on informal evenings. We also have a comprehensive loan system available to members including TX/RX, Test Equipment and a library. We run nets on GB3NB on a Monday evening and HF nets with our Twinned Club in Koblenz.
So take look around and we look forward to seeing you at the club one evening.
For those who came to the club on Wednesday to see the Field Day talk but could not hear the video properly here is the link as promised.
Many thanks to Roger and Malcolm for the interesting and amusing talk - we would love to hear from you if you can offer a talk or workshop on anything radio & technology related!

It will be lots of fun!
IMPORTANT IF USING DF100 KIT: Nev recently pointed out there was a coax wiring error on the instructions I have been issuing for years for this kit yet nobody has ever spotted or mentioned!
So if you made the DF100 kit more than 2 weeks ago please download and check wiring to the revised DF guide available on the website.

Tonight John G8VPE has kindly offered to run the club net and invites you to call in and share what you want from your radio club! For many the club will probably be NARC but we welcome comments for and about other clubs or maybe why you dont feel your local club doesnt cater for what you want.
Br critical or praising but please be constructive with your thoughts and ideas.
And if you can't make this net we have our members forum at NARC on Wednesday September 4th - the people who run your club really do want to know what you think and want from NARC!
Johns net starts at 19.30 on repeater GB3NB and, as always, everyone is welcome.
We are now looking for a volunteer to run next Mondays net....
