With the government advice of March 16th you will probably not be surprised to learn that the committee and officers of this club have suspended all physical meetings and events for the forseeable future, with immediate effect. However we are aiming to continue to provide an active club presence with a NARC Live! TV stream with guests as well as nets etc which we very much hope you will support and join in.

Whilst schools have now opened, on September 9th the governement annouced that no more than 6 people could meet inside or outside, except for schools, covid secure workplaces and a few other specialised reasons, so as a predominantly social-club we still cannot meet but hope that the NARC Live! stream every Wednesday evening together with nets etc will keep the club together in a virtual way in spirit....

The Club AGM and awards evening originally scheduled for Wednesday April 1st did not take place, but at an online committee meeting on 16th March all club officers and commitee agreed to stay on to run the club for as long as it takes until we can safely reschedule meetings.

As I said previously we will strive to keep the function of the club going with a NARC Live! stream or radio net on Wednesday evenings, plus other onair/online events we will bring to you. After all, communication is at the heart of our hobby, so I feel we should try and put this technology and skill to good use and continue to bring companionship to everyone in our hobby, especially to those who are vulnerable or on their own. And if there is something you feel the club can do to help someone specific, please let one of the committee know and we will do our best.


Please continue to keep an eye on the front page of our website for the latest club news.

Take Care and stay safe.

There have been mumblings in the mortuary about the content in the NARC Newsletter.

It's the same every week!! We see the same people writing stuff every week. It's always about CW, Propagation, Contests etc.

Well, wouldn’t you know it, these are subjects that are the very essence of our hobby!!

We never see any news on home construction, the Bright Sparks, the DX I have worked, the latest antenna I made, repeater news, fast scan TV news, technical topics, and so on.

Well, there is one answer to that! Why don't YOU write something? It's not difficult. I would love to read about YOUR pet subject, so get to your keyboard and start typing. Deadline is Thursday evening, late, and if you are not sure how to get it to the Newsletter, a simple set of instructions are available.

Hi some of you will not be getting the NARC Newsletter mostly people with email addresses containing live.com, live.co.uk, outlook.com, hotmail.co.uk, hotmail.com and aol.com
This is due to problems with our hosting company and the shared ip address we use to host our email server.
I am afraid I am unable to change this currently. I have asked the host to look into this and remove the problem ip address from the blacklist.

You can always read the newsletter online or change the email address you have the newsletter delivered to.

Regards Mark G0LGJ
