Norwich Amateur Radio Club and the Koblenz Amateur Radio Club in Germany have maintained a monthly radio sked since 2004 as part of the City Twinning arrangements between Norwich and Koblenz. The sked is usually on the second Saturday of each month at 10.00am local clock time on 7.135MHz. To assist local Norwich stations to join the sked a listening watch will also be maintained on 145.250 VHF. So if you have difficulty in joining the net please call G3PDH (Malcolm) or G3LDI (Roger) on VHF.
