Week 16 2016

This weeks bit of fun:


Busy week, not much to show for it. I attended the Monday night meeting at the club. There is always a lot going on Monday nights. Thursday we had our main club meeting of the Sutton and Cheam Radio Society. We had a very good talk on test equipment by Bob Burns G3OOU.

Saturday I met up with Neil (M0ZEY) and Chris (M0TCH). We all attended a Train the Trainers course which was very helpful.
