Kempton Rally – April 2016

Another incredibly successful Rally, where the club provided the usual marshalling to Radio Fairs. Thanks to Ray and Paul for having us on board. It was good to see all the familiar faces in the queues outside prior to the opening of the Rally. All the usual suspects were there exhibiting and keeping the customers happy. Yaesu Kenwood and Icom were there demonstrating their latest, and the dealers were busy selling. The club also had the privileged access to several tables, selling members’ “knick-knacks”, including Oscilloscopes, and other radio related devices. Usual thanks to those of our members who were there from 6 am helping to check in the dealers, through to those helping with Marshalling, Cashiering, Security and other jobs.

Overall, a great day out for the club. Well done all. Until the next one in November

Site Problems

I’m Sorry.

Been trying to sort the site out as best I can, but while it works on the temporary site, for some reason it stopped on the place it’s normally hosted, and I can’t figure out why.

The Database is hosted elsewhere and was working perfectly well until recently. I suspect it’s possibly an upgrade somewhere that has broken stuff on sites I run, but I fixed them with 2 lines of additional code. is hosted on box that isn’t Linux and I suspect that this is why the same code isn’t working (although I’ve left it in place).

We are working still to figure out the solution, but as yet hasn’t happened and I’ve put a temporary solution in place for now.

Fun cube Talk by David G0MRF

What a fantastic talk tonight. One of the most interesting talks I have ever attended at any radio club. Makes such a difference when the speaker is personally involved in the project he is talking about. Full of interactive displays including live telemetry from the satellite, as well as great humour, fun was had by all. Thanks David.
Best 73, Garo, G0PZA , Chairman WARG.  David G0MRF and Funcube

Thanks for the great team effort this evening. 4 people and one manager to work a satellite. – But a first for me.
