Welcome to our 2019 Club Events page.

September 1st signals the start of our new club year. As we enter our eighth year of the Fort Purbrook ARC, we hope to build upon a very successful 2018 at our 'Field Weekend' location at the 'Stone Store' up on the Western ramparts of the Fort.

Please click on the images to enlarge them.

Our location on the Western ramparts brings many benefits, allowing space for the marquee and multiple antenna set-ups. Parking is close to where we set up the marquee, making access much easier. For the winter months we will be in classroom FP-1, near to the Fort Reception Office. For further information, please refer to our calendar below.

A big THANK YOU to all of our club members for your ongoing support.
