Michaelmas 2010

Welcome to the Cambridge University Wireless Society, and welcome back for a new year to our existing members!

Want to read more about what we do? Look at our introductory page. We’re planning an introductory talk about the society on Thursday 14th October and to show people around our radio shack on the Sunday after (17th).

This term sees the annual Radio Society of Great Britain convention, to which we’ll be sending a contingent (and you’re welcome to join them), as well as the annual CQ World Wide SSB contest, into which we regularly put a competitive entry. We’re also looking at a talk and a trip to Bletchley Park later in the term. See our event calendar for more details.

Thanks to the efforts of the volunteers who have done the ground work, and to the generosity of our donors, we have a brand new shack building to which the finishing touches are now being put, and which you should go and see once it’s ready! The club shack is there to allow all licensed members to get on the radio and make contacts around the world without having to acquire your own equipment or find space for antennae in central Cambridge. It’s nearby and a great resource. Don’t forget that we’re always willing to help people obtain amateur radio licences.

I very much hope to see you at one of our events, or perhaps at one of our weekly informal pub meets (Thursday, 2000, The Maypole)!
