Miscellaneous Information

I live near Attleborough and I am the current Chairman of Norfolk Amateur Radio Club, Examination Secretary for Radio courses and 'Bright Sparks' coordinator - our group which aims to encourage and help youngsters with electronics and construction.

I was licensed in 1993 and despite running a small electronics company since 1981 I still really enjoy electronics/radio as my favourite hobby along with large and small scale railways and associated technology! With a busy business, club and family life I sadly have very little time for actual on-the-air radio, but I am partiularly interested in Amateur Television and construction - in particular micro-miniaturisation.

I have been using an Apple Mac since it first came out in 1984 when I had to save really hard to afford this 128K single floppy drive £2000 computer with a 9" monochrome screen, but after feeling rather isolated (and sometimes ridiculed!) in this belief for many years I am delighted that now many others seem to also appreciate their innovation, design and intuitive ease of use. 

Having been single all my life, through great friendships met through Norfolk Amateur Radio Club I finally met my perfect life partner and in October 2013 I married Tammy M3PLU.


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.
