The groups AGM took place on 29th October 2017. There was a good turnout of members. Re – election of the group officers took place and all were re-elected en-bloc.
Discussion took place about our website, use of digital modes, possibility of a standalone communication capability and recruitment .
It is with sadness that we have to report that Cliff Moore G6CZS passed away on Saturday 29th July 2017.
Cliff was well known in Raynet in Norfolk and Suffolk and was a regular supporter of both the larger events and also many of the smaller ones. In the past he was a regular volunteer at Sandringham Flower Show with his late wife Ruth – often managing to get in the background of the TV & camera shots!
RIP Cliff and thank you for helping the community.
After some issues with an automated upgrade the groups website has been returned to normal operations – http://north-anglia-raynet.org.uk
Further work is ongoing to avoid this occurring in the future.
Re-registration of group members is currently under way. Due to changes in the location of the Raynet registrations team and the timing of Easter, new cards are unlikely to be received before April. They will be distributed via the usual means once received.
Hopefully site outage is now fixed. It appears cause was an automatic upgrade of the underlying WordPress software & plugins which failed and left the site unusable. Some of this was related to lack of space on the server. I have deleted the erroneous files & reloaded the necessary files manually.
The group’s AGM took place on Sunday 1st November. Amongst topics discussed included use of HF and 6m at events, updating of equipment and impacts of unification and assisting at other events.
The committee was re-elected as last year:
Chairperson/Group Controller: G1SCQ.
Vice Chair & Technical Officer: G4OKH.
The groups AGM took place on Sunday 2nd November. Officers of the group were re-elected and remain unchanged:
Chairperson & Group Controller: G1SCQ -Kevin
Vice Chair & Technical Officer: G4OKH – Martin
Treasurer: M3MPD – Larry
Secretary: M3JKO – Joey
Item discussed included control trailers, equipment, progressive licence training, voluntary sector coordination & the 146 to 147MHz NOV.
The groups AGM will take place at the usual venue of the Scout Hut at North Runcton on Sunday 2nd Nov at 14:00. This is the venue where King’s Lynn Amateur Radio Club meet and is easily accessible from the A10 or A47. The agenda will be sent out to registered members.
The groups new website is now live and all the previously used facilities on the old site have been transferred across. If there are any problems found please use the contact form and let us know. The old site is still available for archive purposes and can be found at www.northangliaraynet.org.uk/raynet
Work continues on updating the new group website. We have a few more tweaks to make and hope to go fully live in April.
