Post CARS Skills Night - Monday 16 February
The coming Monday, the 16th of February 2015 is the next CARS Skills Night

If you’ve attended one of the get-togethers before, you’ll know that we aim to bring you a good mix of demonstrations, an opportunity to ask questions, and plenty of time to chat and swap ideas. Here's what's planned for this month:

  • HF Pedestrian Mobile: A new one for Skills, find out more and look at some impressive kit from Tom G0SBW
  • Radio Programming: Charlie M0PZT will bring his kit to allow programming of repeaters for most handhelds
  • Digital Modes & Logging: In a dual-role for Charlie M0PZT, he’ll also be able to offer advice on these areas, and he’ll be bringing along a couple of Arduino boards, plus other bits & bobs
  • Construction: Back after a short break, Peter M0PSD returns to help with cables & soldering. Need a patch lead? Come along!
  • CW – Essex CW Club will be there to represent all aspects of Morse – Keep an ear out for Steve G4ZUL and Rob M0KCP
  • Essex Repeater Group: Support the work of the ERG and get some advice on using the local repeaters from the team
  • Antenna Advice: Help and advice on HF, antenna construction and design, ATUs, etc from Carl G3PEM.
  • Callsign Badges – Back again by popular demand after the Canvey Rally – callsign badges while-you-wait courtesy of Jim 2E0JTW
  • Windows Tablet – Pete M0PSX will bring along the new low-priced Linx Windows tablet, mentioned on Essex Ham and in Practical Wireless
  • Quiz: Test your amateur radio knowledge, just for fun
Members of CARS, Essex Ham, Essex Repeater Group and the Essex CW Club will be on hand to help with questions

Venue: Danbury Village Hall, 2 Main Road, Danbury, Chelmsford Essex CM3 4NQ – Directions:

The Skills Night is free to attend, with refreshments provided. The event is open to all regardless of licence level and club affiliation. The Skills Night is an initiative from the CARS Training Team, and is supported by Essex Ham.
