At NARC we cater for a wide variety of interests within the hobby of Amateur Radio and our membership ranges from complete beginners to those experienced in operating and building electronic equipment.
Beginners have the opportunity to participate in courses run by NARC for all three licence levels. The Social aspect of the club is thriving with family events such as Radio by the Seaside and Radio Active weekend, NARC also operates in various contests and in the last two years we have won the RSGB Club Championships on 80m.
We have a comprehensive club programme running throughout the year, the complete list can be seen on the diary page. We also try to cater for youngsters with our "Bright Sparks" evenings when we dedicate an evening to assist the younger members in construction and operating techniques. We offer club trips and also run the annual Barford Radio Rally which falls on July 6th 2014.
We have a shack at NARC which has HF, 6M , 2M and 70cm along with laptop for data modes and CW on HF along with D-STAR on 70cm the shack is open on informal evenings. We also have a comprehensive loan system available to members including TX/RX, Test Equipment and a library. We run nets on GB3NB on a Monday evening and HF nets with our Twinned Club in Koblenz.
So take look around and we look forward to seeing you at the club one evening.
Tonight is a social informal evening with construction facilities and help available.
It is also Bright Sparks for our younger members who will be working on and testing the Robots....
As usual we meet between 1900-2200 in 6th form common room at City of Norwich School.
• Our new host Festig will be there from 10.00 to sign everyone in
Tonight John G8VPE has kindly offered to run the club net and invites you to call in and share what you want from your radio club! For many this will be NARC but we welcome comments for and about other clubs or maybe why you dont feel your local club doesnt cater for what you want.
Br critical or praising but please be constructive with your thoughts and ideas.
Johns net starts at 19.30 on repeater GB3NB and, as always, everyone is welcome.
We are now looking for a volunteer to run next Mondays net....

My thanks to all of the instructors who have agreed to help run these courses and our hosts at CNS who make it possible for us to run these courses which are open to all.
As I said on last weeks newsletter, there is going to be a special crazy fun foxhunt this coming Sunday 24th August and we already have 4 teams taking part, but you must preregister so that we can send you the joining instructions and produce enough 'goodies' for this special direction finding fun day.
Its open to anyone but for safety reasons there just needs to be a minimum of 2 people per car plus a mobile phone and a map of Norfolk and some DF gear or just a handheld radio and some luck......
Eventually we will retire to a pub for a nice drink and Sunday lunch.
