Eric Holt, G3MHQ now Silent Key

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Eric Holt, G3MHQ a long-term Club member on 9th February 2014 after a short illness. He was also a long standing member of the 160m Sunday net and we shall all miss him.


The Society runs Foundation and Intermediate training courses - usually on Wednesday evenings (7.30pm to 9.30pm) at a venue near Harrow-on-the-Hill bus/train/underground stations or there is street parking nearby if travelling by car.

At Foundation level, the course fee is £26 plus £27.50 for the exam. Students will also need to have a copy of the RSGB book "Foundation Licence Now!" which is available on-line from www.rsgbshop.org/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_Training_19.html

Please contact Brian (G3YKB) at g3ykb@yahoo.co.uk (telephone 01923 228121) for more details or to book a place.

GB3HR, The Harrow 433 MHz (70 cms) FM Repeater

A new UHF Base Station has recently been installed and is running 9 Watts erp from our site near Harrow Weald. The new transceiver consists of a Kenwood TKR 851 running 12 Watts RF output on 433.350 MHz and receiving on 434.950 MHz. The station will relay FM transmissions when a continuous sub-audible tone (CTCSS) of 82.5 Hz is sent. The station identifies as GB3HR D in Morse Code, the D denoting the sub-audible code 82.5 Hz. The station has also had a new 6dbD gain collinear antenna installed and this has greatly improved coverage throughout Watford, Harrow and surrounding areas.

Please listen out for our station and call through if you have 433 MHz FM capability. Several RSH club members can be found there.
73, Peter Marcham G3YXZ

Donations towards the upkeep of GB3HR will be very gratefully received - please contact Peter Marcham for details: peter.marcham@btinternet.com, 07713 155580.
