After some hard work from Michael M0MPM, Tom M0LTE and our web team, we are happy to announce that there is a live QSL card viewing system for RADARC (M0AAA,MX0AAA,G3ULT, G3AKF, M4T,M0EEE).
There is a vast amount of cards to see and one can search, browse or just sit back and watch as a slide show.
Thanks again to all involved.

We just wanted to share this picture of the wonderful memorial to Graham G3XZJ made by his family (thanks Wally for the picture). It shows that radio was just one of his many and varied interests (and it sounds like he was expert in them all!). We shall all miss you Graham.
In memory of Graham Maynard G3XZJ an inspirational and accomplished trainer, an active and respected club member who will be sorely missed.
For anyone into military radio, Patrick kindly pointed out that these Clansman SURF units are available quite cheaply on well know auction sites currently. It is essentially a variable bandpass filter I believe, designed for using VHF manpacks together in close proximity. It is a beautiful piece of engineering if slightly radioactive!
I love the worm drive – a variable capacitor and variable inductor is driven from the tuning knob via this drive.
Looks like new inside.
Sorry about the bright pink basket!!
We had some Clansman fun at the Barbecue – thanks John, Patrick and Alison for helping out – learnt a lot about the Clansman kit. The mast is a Clansman 5.4 metre with Clansman dipole (eventually set correctly for 60m!) and an elevated groud spike antenna on top for 4 metres.
Just some of the interesting items which were on show at the makers bazaar…
Don’t forget the RADARC summer barbecue on Saturday 15th July 2017 2pm-10pm at the RRFC – contact a member of the committee to get your tickets. (£5 or £7.50 each depending on food option)
Over the Christmas break I was lucky enough to be invited to a small private radio museum in Southern Hungary. I took a few pictures to look at if anyone is interested. There is one ‘propaganda box’ with featured a selected switch for tuning so that only approved stations could be heard! Naturally people hope modified them. I wish I had room to do this at my QTH! 73, Simon M0ZSU
