The government has set in place conditions designed to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus. In compliance, The Medway Amateur Radio and Transmitting Society (MARTS) cancels all club weekly and other meetings until further notice. This effective closure is likely to be for a period of twelve weeks or more.

The weekday morning club net at 9:30am on 144.650MHz will continue and could allow members to remain in contact.

It is planned that a similar net take place on Friday evenings starting at approximately 19:30hrs local time and running probably for a couple of hours. Colin G6PBS has offered his service as controller, using G2FJA.

Please join in; 144.650MHz will be the preferred frequency but search elsewhere if that frequency is in use by priority or other users.

Also, please keep an eye on this 'NEWS' section where club notices may appear from time to time.

As a result for some relatively simple information about the complexity of numbers involved with space weather, Steve G4HJE have provided some useful space weather information.

MARTS Morning Net
The club operates a morning net during weekdays from 0930hrs to about 1030hrs on 144.650MHz. All are invited.

The Saturday morning net also starts at 09:30, generally on 144.650 but occasionally on GB3KN. Members transmit on 145.100MHz with a CTCSS of 103.5Hz, and listen on 145.700MHz.
The Nets are "controlled" by the Club call G2FJA subject to availability of a club member who holds a full license.
