CTARC Work Party on 25 March '17

Please note that because the CTARC held its Mega Fleamarket on Saturday 4 March 2017, there will be a work party at the CTARC clubhouse on Saturday 25 March. This is in place of the normal (sit-down) monthly meeting / lecture that usually takes place on the fourth Saturday of the month.

Our main antenna mast needs to be lowered and the Force-12 yagi antenna requires some serious maintenance / repair. In addition, we want to raise an HF vertical antenna that was kindly donated to the CTARC.

We'd be most grateful for any assistance from club members who can attend. We meet at 09h00 on Saturday morning 25 March at the CTARC Clubhouse.

Our next monthly meeting will be at 14h00 on Saturday 22 April 2017.

CTARC Forthcoming April Meeting

On Saturday 22 April at 14h00, the Cape Town Amateur Radio Centre will hold its monthly meeting for April at the usual clubhouse venue.

At the meeting, Hendrik / ZS1EEE will give a talk on Software Defined Radio. This revolutionary technology, where computer software takes over a major part of the RF signal demodulation processes (formerly only do-able with expensive hardware) is providing a paradigm shift in amateur (as well as commercial and military) radio applications.

Don't miss this one!
