Wednesdays NARC Live! Club meetings are streamed live to both Facebook video and simultaneously to the BATC Live streamer. 

If you miss one you can watch it again on our Facebook page at  www.facebook.com/norfolkamateurradioclub 

We will be doing NARC Live! every Wednesday night at 7.30pm BUT we really need input and content from you! If you have a story to tell, a picture to share, a talk to give or are willing to let us into your shack (its really easy using almost any modern mobile phone or computer with a webcam) then please drop me a note -  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Stay safe

With the government advice of March 16th you will probably not be surprised to learn that the committee and officers of this club have suspended all physical meetings and events for the forseeable future, with immediate effect. However we are aiming to continue to provide an active club presence with a NARC Live! TV stream with guests as well as nets etc which we very much hope you will support and join in.

Whilst schools have now opened, on September 9th the governement annouced that no more than 6 people could meet inside or outside, except for schools, covid secure workplaces and a few other specialised reasons, so as a predominantly social-club we still cannot meet but hope that the NARC Live! stream every Wednesday evening together with nets etc will keep the club together in a virtual way in spirit....

The Club AGM and awards evening originally scheduled for Wednesday April 1st did not take place, but at an online committee meeting on 16th March all club officers and commitee agreed to stay on to run the club for as long as it takes until we can safely reschedule meetings.

As I said previously we will strive to keep the function of the club going with a NARC Live! stream or radio net on Wednesday evenings, plus other onair/online events we will bring to you. After all, communication is at the heart of our hobby, so I feel we should try and put this technology and skill to good use and continue to bring companionship to everyone in our hobby, especially to those who are vulnerable or on their own. And if there is something you feel the club can do to help someone specific, please let one of the committee know and we will do our best.

 

Please continue to keep an eye on the front page of our website for the latest club news.

Take Care and stay safe.

This is our competition where each week we show an unusual object, tool, gadget or thing-me-bob from one of the NARC members and you have to guess (or you know!) what it is for...

 

Have a look at this weeks object - What on earth is this... (if you know who would use one you are half way there!)

Please email your answers with the subject 'What on earth' to David & Tammy This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 3pm on Wednesday and on NARC Live we will read out all of the entries and tell you what it is!

 

 

Whats your mystery object?

We also need your photos of unusual items from NARC members to feature in future weeks. To enter please send us a good quality photo of your 'What on earth is this' along with a brief description and ideally a second photo of it in use by email to the same email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

Surely everyone has one of those 'must-have' kitchen gadgets they bought at a show or one of the strange inventions by Ronco or KTel that you just had to have at the time, but only used once! Please use your own photo if you possibly can, but if you do send us a photo from someone else please be sure to tell us who owns the © copyright.

As we enter a new year, like me I hope that you share my feeling that this year will be better than 2020 for everyones sake.

However of course it looks like it will still be some time before the club will be able to meet, so Tammy and I plan on continuing to produce NARC Live every week to keep everyone in touch as well as hopefully educate, enthuse and entertain.

 

As well as the guest speakers which Roger and I are already researching and engaging, we would really like to tap into some of the talent that I feel sure we have within our own club and ask you to consider if you have a particular aspect of amateur radio, electronics or other interest which you could talk about from home, then please drop me a line or call me to discuss (without obligation) as I promise we will make that process easy; It does not have to be a formal talk with powerpoint type slides etc, just something that you know a bit about and feel others will be interested in -  we can just talk about it between us if that makes you more comfortable.

Last year several club members who are not normally speakers rose to the challenge and I hope that others will follow this year - couldn't you?

 

With thanks for your continued support of NARC Live and sincere gratitude for the wonderful award which the club presented to Tammy and I in a surprise visit, although we do not expect or ask anything except that you to keep watching and participating as you have done so loyally since the end of March last year.

And a reminder that you can watch any previous NARC Live! on catchup (including last weeks award special) just by visiting  www.facebook.com/norfolkamateurradioclub

 

Tammy joins me in sending our very best wishes for health, happiness and hope to you, your family and friends for 2021.

 

David G7URP 

Chairman NARC

 

 

 



In this current climate, we hope you will appreciate that we cannot make plans for when we can start meeting at CNS school.


Although NARC currently has reduced costs, as a club, we still have some financial commitments to consider and meet, such as insurance and RSGB membership, and essential equipment maintenance.
With this in mind, the committee has decided to make the 2021 membership fee just £5 across the board for anyone for the year which should cover our reduced costs.
This will be the NARC "Online Membership” and we invite you to rejoin now, because in the future when we start to meet again and have the significant additional costs of school hire etc subsequent membership fees will then revert to the normal rates.

So we invite you to rejoin (or join) NARC now for 2021 and pay us ideally by direct bank transfer (be sure to use your callsign/surname as reference) - please also complete and email the membership form if you are not a current member. (NB - As Mark askes please pay by BACS bank transfer if you can because even though we are a voluntary organisation Paypal still take a commission.
