Friday Night Net Controller Wanted


Who wants to have a crack at running the Friday night net? No experience necessary.  Just turn up at 8:00 pm on a Friday night, take up the club callsign and call for participants.  Run it your way.  Pick a theme, run a quiz or whatever you want.  You’re just there to control the flow.  Not available every Friday night?  No worries.  Just arrange for someone else to stand in when you’re absent.  Turn up on the Friday night net and give it a go.

SARC clubrooms open

The clubrooms at Richmond Hill are now open for meetings and informal Sunday gatherings. The key issue will be to stay safe and keep others safe.

Our members include many who are in the older vulnerable age groups and may have existing health conditions.

Even if you still feel ‘bullet proof’ please consider other members and those they come in contact with.  We don’t want to be part of a string of contacts that leads to tragedy.

If you’re unwell or may have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 then STAY AWAY.

Numbers at the clubroom will be limited to ten in the main room plus one in each of the Radio room, Office and Kitchen at any time.  Please keep 1.5 metres from everyone else as far as practical.

There will be hand sanitiser available.  Use it on arrival, before and after touching anything anything else and on departure.
