Miscellaneous Information

I was first licensed in 1969 and been primarily interested in construction and CW operating. Have taken part in numerous NFDs and operated in both HF and VHF contests. My recent operating has been largely QRP CW (100 DXCC on 40m) with small garden antennas; it can be done by understanding how propagation works and that is my main driving force.

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.
