If you can't make it to the club join us on the GB3HA repeater on Tuesday nights. Many of us come on to GB3HA between 20:00 and 21:00 local time on Tuesday nights. Newly licenced amateurs are particularly welcome.
Refection and refraction are two of the more important issues in signal propogation.
In a recent pair of talks on VHF and HF propagation David Stansfield (G0EVV), an experienced tutor in Advanced Licence courses, used a laser pointer in a darkened room against a wall to show the effect of both reflection and refraction. Care was taken to make sure the laser pointer was only directed at the wall. An object in between was used to show how the light dispersed differently. Demonstrating in the visual spectrum was analoguous to effects in the radio spectrum.

Nancy is also the Repeater Keeper.
The club also has it's own station for members to use on club nights. (Pictured Below)
