RADIO TEST NIGHT – This Friday 22/3/2013

This Friday night John MM0JXI will be running his annual radio test night. It is a great opportunity to get your radio tested using sophisticated teast equipment. Over the years John has discovered a few faulty radio’s so proves the worth of the evening.

If you are bringing equipment remember Microphones, Power Leads or whatever else your equipment requires.

We are in the Cockenzie Resource Centre (Community Centre), Resources Room 1 from 19:30 to 21:30
Cost £2 per head to cover the room hire for the evening.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Friday.
