!!!!!!!!!!       IMPORTANT NOTICE     !!!!!!!!!!

 

 CLUB MEETINGS AT CHURCH HALL CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE 

 

 MEETINGS ON THE AIR WILL BE HELD INSTEAD ON 145.375MHZ 

 

 

 

With case numbers still on the increase because of the Omicron variant of Covid, we have taken the decision to keep the club meetings at the Church Hall closed for January.  We regret having to make this decision but feel it important to ensure the safety of our members, their families and others.

 

The situation will be reviewed again early in February.

 

In the meantime we will revert to holding meetings on the air, possibly with simultaneous Zoom meetings as these seem to be quite popular.

 

 

 

Club members and visitors normally meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 8pm in St Peter Church Hall, Braintree. Further information on getting there is on our About Us page and all are welcome to attend.

We also have a club net on 2m FM on V30/S15 (145.375MHz) on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays at 8pm and, if there is a 5th Tuesday in the month, via the local GB3BZ 70cm analogue repeater on RU68 (input 438.450MHz output 430.850MHz CTCSS 110.9). Again, all are welcome to join in.

We are on Facebook (Page Badars @G6BRH Organisation and Profile Badars Moxg) and also Twitter (badars @badars_M0XG)

Information on upcoming events can be found on our Programme page.

 

NEWS HEADLINES!!!

 

After restarting physical club meetings in September we have regrettably decided it's too risky to continue them with the current wave of Covid upon us. We have therefore reinstated Meetings On The Air (MOTA) instead, but have added a live video link for members via Zoom which has been a great success. Our next MOTA's will be on 11th and 25th January 2022. We have a programme planned for the first half of 2022 but will be reviewing the situation again in early February.

 

The club supported the 1st Castle Headingham Scouts with the return of their Jamboree On The Air at their headquarters. A great time was had by all and more information on the event can be found on our Activity Reports page.

 

We recently organised a special event station GB5RD which commemorated Remembrance Day and was operated from members own stations and the Stisted contest site. Updates have been posted on Twitter and a report will be posted on this website shortly. In the meantime we have a few pictures on our Gallery page.

 

Following our recent AGM we have a new committee.  More information on that and our future plans will appear on our Committee page in due course.
