Hastings Electronics and Radio Club

On Thursday 5th November Phil G3MGQ, the clubs RSGB approved licence trainer visited the cubs at the Sidley scouts and introduced them to amateur radio and Morse code communication to help them pass their communication badge. Further visits are being planned in the future with the Sidley scouts to raise awareness of the hobby and encourage the younger ones to learn more about radio communication while earning their communications badge.

On Wednesday 25th November, 7.30pm, Phil G3MGQ will be giving a talk at the Taplin Centre on the subject of the ‘GB2WW1 Special Event Station’ which took place earlier this year at the historical Batemans estate, Rudyard Kiplings former home, in co-operation with the 10th Essex Living History Group.
