A small part of the long history of Cambridge & DARC.  A partial archive of Contest and Portable Operating.

Remembered here are some of the selfless characters that enabled CDARC to still exist after 100 years.  Field days and events are truly hard work, mouse clicks don't do it.   They need "old fashioned" committment, operational and organisational skills with team playing in abundance.  And some luck with favourable propagation too!

(Feedback, additions and corrections to 2019, hopefully)

A big thank you to several people who have given corrections or additional information.   Unfortunately the file has been copied, made a PDF and displayed on the the Official CDARC site, which is fine, I am unable to amend the anotations on the official site though.  My apologies to the people who have taken the trouble to contact me and can't see the changes or informatoion updated on that site.  Some are listed below, with links to their memories and additional information, for others I have tried to amend the anotations, I hope correctly.  This site should show the latest information.
