Hello and welcome to the King’s Lynn Amateur Radio Club site.
All of our lives have been altered dramatically recently with the awful pandemic that has swept through our society.
It will not be a surprise to find that we have made the decision not to hold this years “Great Eastern Rally”. Of course it is a shame but the safety of our Members and visitors has to come first! The Gaywood Community Centre have very kindly allowed us to carry our booking over to next year.
The 31st Great Eastern Rally date is now Sunday 1st August 2021.
On a positive note we are still getting new membership enquiries.
I am delighted to say that one new member “Andy” who joined us after lockdown has successfully passed his Foundation exam.
This has been made possible by the RSGB lifting the practical requirement and allowing online examinations. Of course Andy has done all the hard work and I look forward to hearing his well deserved new callsign on the air soon.
Kevin (M0KKM) has signed the club up for the “Beyond Exams” scheme the the RSGB is launching. The aim is to introduce all of us to the many facets of the hobby. It’s a good excuse to try something new. Check rsgb.org for more detail.
The Club has stopped assembling face to face for a while now. We are trying to stay in touch and I am sure many of you will have noticed an increase in traffic on the radio. KLARC currently run three Nets. These are very informal and definitely not too serious although Club news and updates may be communicated.
I would like to encourage all members to join in the Nets. If you are not sure how to take part in a Net don’t worry there is now a guide on the website (Click on the Nets tab). I am happy to help further if you need it, just send me an email! If you are unable to join in but are monitoring the Nets let me know and we will give you a shout out.
We are always looking for volunteers to run the Nets, If you are interested please contact me it can be good fun, honest!

There are plenty of Contests going on to keep the more competitive amongst us entertained. If you want to try contesting and need some guidance please ask.
I would like to thank Sarah who continues to work away in the background on the website. Have a look at the latest offering “Lockdown Laughter” silly stuff to make you smile. Please help cheer everyone up and send amusing jokes, stories and photos to Sarah so we can all share the laughter or at least smile.
If you find yourself in quarantine for your or others safety, don’t struggle, you are not alone! There are many Club members that will be happy to help. If you have Radio related issues or need help with collection of essential food and medicine and delivery to your door, please get in touch!
I can be reached on the Radio and by email on email@example.com
