Make or repair?
There are many old pieces of test gear which have been offered to NARC members free from someone in Norwich.
If you are interested in this sort of equipment please contact David G7URP on the address below and he will put you in touch.

Best Wishes from NARC.... 

We have created a special card from Norfolk Amateur Radio club featuring pictures of club events and people.
If you know anyone who is celebrating a Special Occasion, is unwell or just feeling fed up in these strange times and would be cheered by receiving one of these cards from the club (amateur or not), drop us a line with the recipients address and we will be pleased to send one to them.
NARC Live is here to keep everyone in touch in these strange times but we rely on you for content, so if you have any other news for this spot, just drop it on an email to David G7URP & Tammy M0TC:   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Tuesday class is well attended, as is the Thursday class on GB3NB.
INFORMAL evenings at the Club will still have Morse in the Computer Room with Paul M1AFQ and Chris G4CCX.

There have been mumblings in the mortuary about the content in the NARC Newsletter.

It's the same every week!! We see the same people writing stuff every week. It's always about CW, Propagation, Contests etc.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, these are subjects that are the very essence of our hobby!!

We never see any news on home construction, the Bright Sparks, the DX I have worked, the latest antenna I made, repeater news, fast scan TV news, technical topics, and so on.

Well, there is one answer to that! Why don't YOU write something? It's not difficult. I would love to read about YOUR pet subject, so get to your keyboard and start typing. Deadline is Thursday evening, late, and if you are not sure how to get it to the Newsletter, a simple set of instructions are available.


Hi if you need to purchase from the shop or post on the forum you will need to login to the website. If you do not have a login please register with us.Click one of the buttons below to start the process.

We are pleased to offer courses which are based on demand and our programme of other events and activities. To register your interest for a course and exam please email your name and contact details, together with which level of training course you are waiting for,  to the Club Exam Secretary David Palmer G7URP: This email address is being protected from spambots.
