Also in GB2RS this week…

| April 1, 2016

The findings of the Amateur Radio Survey that was undertaken at the end of last year have now been analysed. An initial summary will appear in the June edition of RadCom and a presentation of the key findings will be made available to affiliated clubs later in the year.

Sad news now. Northern newsreader Hugh Morgan Jones, M1NTO has become a silent key after a long illness. Hugh was a very capable news reader and always reliable. Our sympathy goes out to his family and friends. His funeral will be held at Tyldesley Methodist Church on Monday the 11th of April at 10am.

The Leicestershire UHF Beacon, GB3LEU, was switched off on the 24th of February to investigate spurious emissions that were being produced by the transmitter’s synthesiser stage. The design is based on the LMX2541 IC. It is not known how long it will be out of service. If anyone has experience of this particular chip, the repeater group would appreciate a call. Please contact Geoff Dover, G4AFJ on 01455 823 344.

RSGB Members are reminded that voting is still open for the resolutions at the forthcoming AGM. Full information, and details of how to vote, were contained in the April edition of RadCom.
