Next meeting

A "virtual" Round Robin meeting on 19th October from 8pm for everyone to update each other on their Amateur Radio activities (or otherwise!) - joining details will be sent to all members.

 

Extra 2m Net on "non-meeting" Mondays

In the current absence of face to face meetings, we will be holding additional 2m FM Nets on the Mondays when we do not hold a "Virtual Meeting (see above) starting at 8pm.  This will be on 145.350MHz or the next lower free channel on the 2nd, 4th (and 5th) Mondays of the month.

 

All "Real" Meetings still cancelled until further notice

As our normal meeting place is still closed until further notice and in view of H.M. Government's advice and recommendations to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the SRCC Committee is taking the following steps:
1> Cancel all normal SRCC Meetings and Events until further notice.
2> Continue to issue a monthly Newsletter
3
> Suspend the SRCC Club Rules until we are able to resume normal meetings.
4> Encourage members to take part in the weekly on-air nets.
5> Encourage members to enter radio contests.
6> Review the situation on a regular and timely manner so that SRCC activities can be resumed as soon as possible within HM Government's Guidelines.

The committee members will keep in regular contact with each other by email and hold "Virtual" Committee Meetings as and when required.

It is with considerable regret that the committee is taking these actions, but is mindful that the health and well-being of Club Members must take precedence over other considerations.

About Us

You are now at our new internet home of www.SRCC.uk.

Welcome to the Web Site of the Amateur Radio Club based in Croydon known as SRCC - Surrey Radio Contact Club. We are one of the oldest Clubs in the area, having been founded in 1935.  We currently have a membership of over 60 and meet twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Mondays (except when there are Bank Holidays - see "Meeting Calendar").  Meetings are held at the Trinity School, Shirley Park, Croydon CR9 7AT.

The 1st meeting of the month ("1st meeting") is the main meeting when we have visiting speakers, surplus equipment sales, construction contests, etc. Some talks may be non-technical, e.g. local history. Members’ requests of what talks would be of interest is always considered.  The 2nd meeting of the month ("2nd meeting") is a lot more informal being a natter night, fix-it evening, "Move-It-On", etc.

All meetings start at 7.45pm with a mid-evening tea break. We make no charge for attending the meetings and it costs only a minimum of £8.00 a year for membership, which includes a monthly Newsletter. However, voluntary contributions above this will be gratefully received.

Other activities include attendance at the twice yearly Kempton Rallies, VHF NFD contest every July, Special Event stations, other contests, and an Annual Club Dinner. Our club also recognises personal and technical efforts by annual presentation of trophies and certificates.

SRCC encourages development of construction and subsequent testing skills by annual provision of simple, useful, affordable, achievable projects provided as kits, for building/testing on specified meetings in the club calendar.

We are an Affiliated Society of the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) and adhere to the RSGB Child Protection Policy.

You will be more than welcome to attend a meeting or two and join in before making up your mind.

This website has copies of our Newsletter, details of forthcoming meetings, and a link to a map to find us, etc. Use the menu at the top of the page to explore further.

Trust this will be of interest to you and we look forward to welcoming you at a forthcoming meeting.
