CLUBS:

As mentioned in the Main News, many clubs have notified us that they are suspending meetings due to the Covid-19 outbreak. As the government advice is to refrain from social gatherings, we have only included the details of regular nets as well as those newly created in place of club meetings. Several clubs have suggested keeping an ear on your local repeater to chat with anyone who is self-isolating or just wanting a chat.

Wigtownshire Amateur Radio Club has cancelled all meetings for the foreseeable future. In place will be a net on GB3DG from 7.30pm every Thursday. See GM4RIV.org for further information.

Mid Lanarkshire Amateur Radio Society is closed until further notice. Updates will be posted on https://mlars.co.uk
