General Information:

HARIG meets at the Park Pavilion, Barrack Lane, Harwich, Essex, CO12 3NS. UK on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Meetings start formally at 8pm and visitors are always welcome.

The 2021 Programme of Meetings include:

    All traditional HARIG meetings and events are now postponed until the Government guidance on the Covid-19 Virus changes, and most people feel comfortable meeting in person again.

    This is unfortunate but necessary in the current situation. We will notify members when the situation changes.

    The next (19th) joint HARIG and CRA VIRTUAL meeting via Skype will be on Thursday 18th November - at 7.30pm local time … a talk "New EMF conformance required by your licence" with Q&A by John M0JAV We will watch a video by John, who leads for the RSGB on EMF measurement, and then he will join the Skype live to answer questions. This is particularly timely since Thursday 18th November is also the date by which all licensees are required to have undertaken assessments of their station for operation at any bands higher than 110MHz!

    To participate in this virtual meeting, please download and make a Skype ID if you don't already have one. Then search within Skype for "G0DVJ M4J" and send an add request (wave). Jonathan will then add you to his contact list as well as the CRA Virtual Meeting group. You will receive a Skype scheduled call invitation in advance of the meeting. Accept that and have Skype open at the time and date of the meeting and you will be joined automatically. You do not need a camera or microphone but can use them if you have.

    We are planning to hold an AGM in December which may be online. More details nearer the time.

  • CANCELLED : May: Field Radio Day and Social on the Bank Holiday Monday at Val's QTH
