Upcoming Events

3D Printing Showcase

Tuesday 10th September at the Tromode HQ, we will be having a 3D printer show and tell with demonstrations, prototype parts to look at and see how this manufacturing process can fit in with Amateur Radio.

Whether its making cases for your QRP kit or, adapters to allow you to fit PowerPole to your existing radios, the possibilities are endless.

Printers will be provided by Gavin Wilby 2D0PEY, and Matty Cunningham MD0MAN with a possibility of a laser cutter also being demonstrated.

So please come along to what will prove to be a very interesting night at the IOMARS HQ.

Intermediate Exams

Wednesday 12th June will see two further members taking their Intermediate exams. All of us at IOMARS and beyond wish them luck.

The Ballasalla shack now has antenna’s fitted for both HF (dipole at 40M) and VHF/UHF operation.

Foundation and Intermediate practicals are currently being held at the shack in Ballasalla. Exams for both will be taking place shortly afterwards as our members are keen to get them completed before the curriculum changes in August.

We are continuing with digital modes and also some SDR satellite tracking.
