Miscellaneous Information

Phillip has been in amateur radio since 1978. An RSGB Board member since 2008 but
must stand down allowing more time for NARC activities. Best known as GB2RS News
reader.
First licensed in 1980 Phillip has been involved in the hobby since 1978. He has been
very active in the RSGB as a Board member since 2008 but the Constitution of the Society
requires him to stand down at this year’s AGM.
During his time as a Board member he was instrumental in initiating the Regional
Websites; and, with Roger G3LDI, rejuvenating the GB2CW service and introducing the
Morse Competency Scheme. He has also been involved with the development of
RadCom and particularly the Getting Started in Series as well as the Newcomers
Newsletter written by Steve G0KYA. He continues to work on the creation of an Advanced
Newsletter and preparation of an on-line Ten Year RadCom Index for release this autumn.
Phillip will continue to be involved with the Society’s publications but ending his term as a
Board member will provide him with additional time to devote to NARC activities. Perhaps
best known to many NARC members as provider of the GB2RS News service, his
commitment to providing this service since 1994 is evidence of the dedication and
commitment he can bring to the Committee’s activities.
Apart from NARC, other Memberships include: Essex CW Group, BATC and G-QRP Club.

NARC Training 2019

Training is very important to us as we realise that is how new people can come into the hobby and attain their Foundation, Intermediate and Advance Amateur Radio licenses.

The Syllabus and Exams for all levels is changing significantly from August 2019 and so like many other clubs we need to take a break from running courses from August to give us time to research, prepare and plan courses based on all three levels for 2020. However we will be running three courses before August; A Foundation course in April, an Intermediate course from March - May and another Foundation course in June - July. So if you would like to take either of these exams with NARC in 2019 you need to book your place as soon as possible by emailing Exam Secretary David G7URP: This email address is being protected from spambots.
