On Saturday the 5th December it was decided to have a bit of a “do” the following Saturday and everyone should bring a plate of food, you know, what you can eat and perhaps a little more for those that knew nothing about it!!  The first photo shows the table at the beginning, this was added to during the morning and the second photo what was left; this will be eaten on Wednesday evening.

The pictures below show members of the club enjoying their Christmas Dinner, this year at the Carpenters Arms at Fiskerton.  It should be noted for future events that our members rarely remember what they have ordered and reminders should be given to them on arrival at the venue.  Thanks to Sue Gray for sorting this out.

The Construction Contest this year was won by Peter M0EJL with his DSO138 Digital Oscilloscope which he built from a kit.  I understand the circuit is simple, reliable and inexpensive; possibly a Saturday morning project for our newly licenced members.   (I notice there are some on eBay for £13 including postage).

It doesn’t have to be a radio related talk to keep our members enthralled.  We were delighted to welcome Karen Crow the Town Crier for the City of Lincoln to the club on the 25th November when she gave us an interesting talk on her duties as Town Crier and how she got into public speaking.

Thanks Chris 2E0NDT for the photo.

Following the recent foundation course several of the successful candidates attended the club on December 5th where Ian G4EVK explained the radio equipment in the shack; then Pam G4STO provided light refreshments (hotdogs) and sold Intermediate Course booklets in readiness for an Intermediate Course planned for the New Year.   Steve M5ZZZ followed this by giving details of the club activities and Bob G7AVU concluded the proceedings with a talk about the repeaters.
