IOMARS please to announce new Foundation Course in December

IOMARS are running a foundation course based at the Shack in Ballasalla on Wednesday nights. The theory course will be on the 8/9 the of December at the shack with the exam at 14:00 on Sunday the 9th December 2018. The cost will be £27.50 for members and £37.50 for non members. We can’t do the practical on air until you are registered and need to give at least 2 weeks notice to the RSGB for the exam. I would ask you to fill in the attached application form ASAP and get it to the IOMARS along with payment either via the shack on Wednesday or any committee member. We will not be able to take any applications after November the 24th. It will be in time for Christmas so you can tell your relatives you want that new rig for Christmas.Any queries please email iomars@manx.net

The IOMARS Full Licence Course starts this Wednesday, 24 October at 19.00 in the Malew Scout Building in Ballasalla. The course will be upstairs rather than in the main hall.

The requested manuals have now arrived so they will be ready for collection.

I will be dealing mainly with passive components, resistors, capacitors and inductors and combinations there off, in this first session, so please bring along some of your own for measurement. I will have an LCR meter with me, which can also measure ESR, Q and phase angle.

See most of you there this Wednesday.
