Events 2014

April  (date to be confirmed – originally was going to be in March but with the long term weather uncertainty, it is thought an early weekend in April would be better)


Exercise “Lost in Darkest Norfolk”


A Sunday exercise, although if people would prefer this exercise could be done in an evening say from 19.00 for a couple of hours – please contact Steve and say which night / date would be best for you. This will be very similar to the Exercise we did a couple of years ago.


This is a joint training exercise with the 4x4 group. The exercise will commence around 09.00 and most likely finish around 12.00. The start time will be confirmed closer to the day. (The idea is we all end up in the same place at the end of the exercise for a bit of social time.) – It will take place in the Coastal Area.


Training from this exercise – operating from a mobile station, finding locations from map grid references, passing messages and practise in how we operate.


What will you need? There are different possibilities – to act as an operator in one of the 4x4 group’s vehicles, provide the equipment and act as an operator, or use your own vehicle – there may be some soft non-maintained road work, so if you intend to do this please let me know in advance!


Remember Safety at all times


There will be a full email briefing for all those who wish to take part, sent out the week before (including starting map grid reference.) If you want to take part, please email Steve G7VAH , putting RAYNET – Lost in the subject line. Please say if you want to be an operator in a 4x4, can supply mobile equipment for a 4x4 and operate it or if you want to act mobile for the exercise.
