It is with sadness that we replace the Chairman’s message with the announcement of the passing of Ray Dowsett, MBE, (G3RSV) who went silent key at the weekend. Ray was an integral part of the history of the club, and although he had not attended as much recently, we were all pleased that he was able to come to the rally in the summer. He is pictured here, receiving his Lifetime Honourary Membership Certificate for services to the club and the wider hobby.
For those who wish to attend, there will be a cremation at Mintlyn Crematorium, King’s Lynn, at 1:45 on Monday 17th December, with a gathering afterwards at the Knight’s Hill Hotel Garden Room.
The best wishes of the club go to his family.
A Welcome Message From The Club Chairman
Autumn Welcome Letter
Welcome to the KLARC website. We’re still in the stages of rebuilding the website, but the progress has been encouraging! We hope that you find it helpful and informative.
We meet on a Thursday evening for radio and general chat. £1 covers the cost of all the tea and coffee you can drink.
Our radio shack has been recently updated with new equipment, and those with a current licence are welcome to use it. The Antenna farm has also had a major upgrade as well, so come along and talk to the world!
If you don’t have a licence yet, but you’re interested, please come along and talk about training, equipment, or anything else. We’re happy to demonstrate the wonders of amateur radio in the club shack.
Our upcoming events include Jamboree on the Air, and the start of the Autumn talk season, details of which will be announced on here.
We are a friendly club, always ready to welcome new members, and cover a range of aspects of radio.
Amateur Radio – A 21st Century Hobby
“Whether you enjoy writing software, getting hands-on with practical equipment, developing new technology or simply want to use what’s already there to communicate with others across the world, you’ll find all of this – and more – within amateur radio. It is also great fun. Why don’t you try it?”
