The RAFARS Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Dinner took place on Saturday 22nd October 2016. The AGM was hosted by No 1 Radio School DCAE Cosford and the Dinner was held in the evening at the Ramada Hotel Telford. Following the formal business of the AGM and prize giving, there were presentations on Air Cadet Radio, Amateur Radio Station on the International Space Station (ARISS) and on amateur radio Digital Voice modes and methods of use (DMR, DSTAR and Fusion).
The AGM and Dinner provided the ideal opportunity for old friends to catch up and to put names to faces where previous contact had only been via the airwaves.
Many thanks to Stuart G0TBI for the pictures and permission to use them here and to John G7ACD for arranging refreshments for the AGM. A special thanks to Mike G7JPN for once again making the arrangements for the AGM and co-ordinating with DCAE Cosford.
The Telford Ramada Hotel once again proved an excellent venue for the evening dinner with outstanding service and a wonderful meal. The 2017 AGM and Dinner will take place on Saturday 21st October 2017 at No 1 Radio School and the Ramada Hotel. Full details will be published in due course in the Autumn 2017 edition of the RAFARS Journal QRV and here on the website.
