New Licencee news!

First of all congratulations to Paul Weaver for passing his foundation licence this week! Special thanks from Paul to Robin M7EDM who spent a good number of hours over zoom helping him prep in the run up week!

Also congratulations to Andy M7VNX, our first intermediate pass following the completion of the intermediate pilot course. There were some who passed during the course and a few more still to go so hopefully we will have more good news soon!

Events this week

Tomorrow night we will be holding our first Zoom pub night. Bring your camera or microphone and a cup of coffee or bottle of beer – and join us for a general natter, probably some remote operating and discussion both amateur and other!
