Introduction

Our Club is one which is charged under the Constitution to disseminate knowledge in radio and electronics. We like to encourage enquiries to our hobby, and in our ranks you will find most facets of this hobby expressed. Some of these are modern computer influences in contest logging, vintage radio restoration, antennas, VHF and UHF operation, construction, crystal sets, valve operation and much, much more. If you are interested in it, you will find a kindred spirit in our Club.

You will also find interesting lectures by club members and non club members from time to time, as well as occasional outings to places of interest.

Meetings

Our Club meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month, except for December when there is no 4th Monday meeting.

Second Monday is a Management Committee Meeting.

Fourth Monday is a Social - Technical Meeting.

The Club meets at 7.00pm local time at the Drayton Bowling Club, 46 Gipps Street, Drayton (a Toowoomba suburb). Entry to the Club is via the western end of the building. Off-street parking at the rear, entry off Gipps Street.

Everyone, including visitors, are welcome to all meetings.
