CDARC NET ACTIVITY
Sunday, 1st December 2013
The CDARC nets have been less active in recent times but here was a revival on the grand scale. It all kicked off when Dave G6KWA made his usual early call to Martin G8OFA and the numbers escalated from there. The more members taking part, the more interesting the nets will be. So, why not join in? All times given are local.
09:30 2m USB (H) Calling on 144.300MHz (calling freq.) then moving to 144.180MHz
( this is not, strictly speaking, a CDARC net but all participants are or have been CDARC members and joiners, experienced or not, are encouraged)

BEST FOUNDATION RESULTS EVER
Peter M0DCV, our Training Co-ordinator, scored another success over the weekend of 26-27 October when 6 more candidates studied for and passed the Foundation Exam with flying colours.
Their scores ( subject to confirmation) are believed to be the highest ever achieved on a CDARC Foundation Course.
Congratulations to all the candidates ( pictured below)and well done Peter.
Peter was assisted with the training and the exam by John G0GKP, Mike M0BLP, John M0VCM, Dave G6KWA and David M0ZEB.
