CTARC Meeting - 26 April 2014

Cape Town Amateur Radio Centre held its monthly meeting in April on the afternoon of Saturday, 26 April, at the CTARC clubhouse in Rondebosch.

It was an informal gathering with no set agenda, but was enjoyed by all who attended.

Nick was out of town on that date and unable to attend or take any photos, so if anybody else took photos of that particular meeting, please won't you forward them to Anne, our secretary (whose contact details are here) and she will forward them to be posted here on our blogspot.
