To round off its 40th Anniversary Year, on April 18th, the Braintree Club held an Icom evening. This was supported by ICOM UK, who also have just celebrated their 40th anniversary. Club members were invited to bring along their Icom radio equipment from the last 40 years. The members responded magnificently, with over 50 radios on display, all but one in working condition.
Models on display ranged from IC215 portable to IC400 hf base station and IC2e to IC E90 in the hand held range.. With a host of mobile and base VHF and UHF rigs including, IC 22, IC290, IC211, IC251, IC271 and IC471, the display was a joy to behold. The members spoke briefly about the history of their radios and there were even a couple of of original "new" original purchase receipts. ICOM UK sponsored the raffle with a selection of prizes,our grateful thanks to them for thier help and support. With a really good turnout of members and guests, it was a great way to draw this anniversary year to a close.
Don’t forget club net is held on every 2nd and 4th Monday of each month (excluding Bank Holidays).
Over the last few nets we have been having an increase in the amount of members taken part.
The committee decided that it would benefit members if old copies of the club magazine were available from the web site. Each month a PDF file of the previous months magazine will be available for download. To read the file directly it will be necessary for the viewer to have Adode Reader or a similar PDF reader installed on their PC
