Meeting

From Paul, EI3ENB

“Hi All, The next club meeting will be on Thursday next, the 3rd of July. As the VHF/UHF field day is on the following weekend it will be necessary to make arrangements as to who might be available and where we would operate from etc, your input would be appreciated.”

Looking forward.

A good meeting was had last Thursday, many thanks to all that attended and contributed to the lively discussion.  Plans are underway for the 2m Counties contest along with other events we plan to participate in during the year. A reminder to all to keep an ‘ear’ on S18 when in the shack or mobile.

AIS Talk in Waterford 26th November.

Cormac EI4HQ will give a talk to SEARG about AIS (Automatic
Identification System), a recently introduced radio based ship
transponder technology. AIS is quickly becoming an indispensable
information & safety tool at sea. Cormac will describe why AIS is
interesting from a radio point of view, and he will suggest a few ways
it can be of use in amateur radio applications.

Post AGM Report

Many thanks to everyone for attending the AGM last Thursday. For those that were not present, there are some changes to the committee. So the new committee is:

  • Paul Norris – EI3ENB, Chairperson
  • Eamonn Kavanagh – EI3ENB, Vice Chairperson
  • John Burke – EI2JB, Secretary
  • Tommy Hallinan – EI2IT, Treasurer
  • John Ronan – EI7IG, P.R.O.

Plans are being made for a Christmas dinner, please contact John, EI7IG for details. As we are planning to have a Christmas dinner, the members present deemed it un-necessary to have a meeting in December, with the next meeting being scheduled for the 3rd of January. As the evenings are getting longer, the committee would like to encourage all members to come up on S18 to discuss any experiments they are conducting.
