CTARC Forthcoming Meeting - 27 Apr '19

Following the Fox Hunt at 11h00, the CTARC's April 2019 monthly meeting will take place at the clubhouse on Saturday 27 April at 14h00. Our speaker will be Rob Mansfield ZS1RDM, who will give a talk on military radios. More than a few of our club members will remember these green rigs well from back in the day...

Rob has much experience in getting these solidly-built radios back into service, and has worked on quite a variety of them. We were treated to a demonstration of some of them back in our January "Show and Tell" meeting.

Come early to secure your seat as this promises to be a most interesting talk.

After the meeting, we will also have our usual bring-and-buy SwopShop where members can buy, sell and swop equipment surplus to their requirements. You might even walk off with a green radio in your pocket! As always, we kindly request that all items brought along to the meeting be removed from the clubhouse afterwards.
