Cleddau Amateur Radio Society hopes to inaugurate its D-Star repeater on Patrick Hill, Pembroke Dock on Monday 31 August, having received a lottery grant, some equipment from Icom and Pembrokeshire County Council, plus a lot of hard work from club members. The club was given a lease on the mast site at Patrick Hill, by the Milford Haven Port Authority. This lies close to the club house venue at the man shed in the Dock. Although most of the expenses have been covered, the club will need finances to maintain the running of the facility, so all donations will be gladly accepted, and they urge any users of the site to please dip into their pocket to help in this venture. Contact Howard, MW0HVB, on 07955 433 456.

On Monday Llanelli Amateur Radio Society is having a club night and is on the air. Contact Craig, MW0MXT, on 01269 845 773.
