Steve Hedgecock M0SHQ took along some rigs, antennas and software to the Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society (CARS) Skills Workshop held in Danbury, Essex on May 19.
He explained how to get started in listening to satellites, track them, and have contacts through them. Hopefully we’ll be seeing some new stations from Essex on the satellites in the near future.
The free Skills Workshops are held on the third Monday of each month and provide a great opportunity to chat, swap ideas, and get hands-on with something new. Find out more at http://www.hamskills.co.uk/
As well as the Skills Workshops the Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society run training courses for those wishing to get their amateur licence. To find out more speak to Clive G1EUC on
