IOTA Contest at CARC

This weekend is the RSGB Islands on the Air (IOTA) contest.  It runs from 1200UTC on Saturday for 24 hours on all the normal HF bands.

As a first for CARC I'm proposing we try a 12 hour multi operator SSB entry from the club.
We'll be using the short contest call G3M which is allowed in this contest.

All club members are welcome to come along and have a go or just find out what it's all about.

I'm expecting at most about 500 QSOs in the 12 hours so the rate won't be frantic and should be within the abilities of everyone who fancies having a crack.

Hope to see you there.

Mike, G0KAD

Full Licence Training

The Bath-based Advanced distance learning team are now enrolling for their next course that will run from early July to December.

The course has weekly work packages to guide students through the RSGB textbook with regular revision questions to check on progress.

There are no fees to pay, but students pay a deposit of £30 that is refunded to active students prior to their exam    

The course has been running for nearly five years and has had almost 500 passes so far.

Full details can be obtained from Steve, G0FUW, from g0fuw@tiscali.co.uk.

Also the RSGB have now introduced the ability for your Club to arrange the Advance Licence examination on demand, in a similar way to Foundation and Intermediate, the only difference being that the RSGB require 30 days notice not ten.
