CDARC Pastfaces2 1970 to 1980 (approximately)
This second series of photographs came from another album found during the Colleridge Shack clearance. This albun appears to cover the period from approximately 1970 to around 1980 when the club re-located to its present home at Coleridge Community College. If you hover your mouse over the photographs their reference number is shown by way of title and alt codes to suit as many browsers as possible.
The first 10 photographs were anoted SSB Field Day 1973. No other information is known, if you can add anything mail me.
The next two are clearly a contest in a tent, most probably at Castle Camps, no information as yet. Can you help?
The next five are at Colleridge,
This is the first time the shack was kitted out at Colleridge, refurbishment was carried out three more time before the decision to close the shack was taken in 2018. Can you spot a young slim Geoff Wilkin? Can you name the others for me?
I think next nine might be 1979? or 1980?, certainly the September contest at Castle Camps. Perhaps a different call was used, I can find no trace of an entry from G2XV. The mast belonged to the Pye group, probably company owned, atop is what looks like an 8 over 8 skeleton slot aerial and lower down a vertical folded dipole. Notice that some of the people are having fun flying kites, a great place to do this.
A Raynet meeting at County Hall, at a guess many members of CDARC were also members of Raynet then (and now of course).
The next three, are with thanks to Steve Platt, I think at the Air Cadets meeting place, which was prior to Colleridge, the car park with Brian Davy G4TRO, Martin Cranage G8OFA, Steve Platt G4WSZ(now) and Paul Melbourn G8GML identifiable.
David Wilcox G2FKS is shown in the next two I think he was our Chairman at this time? Need to identify the others, if you can help.
