Laindon Amateur Radio Club Laindon Amateur Radio Club
Okay the newest club in Essex is the Laindon Amateur Radio Club, this club was born from amateurs going onto Langdon Hills and working field days as a group. As a club though things are just starting to get together shall we say, they’re just starting to find their feet but going the right way about things. they have a good membership that is constantly growing and as we know, the more the merrier. They had their first real meet on Friday 30th August 2019 at 8pm and had a guest speaker, Dave M0TAZ who was extremely interesting. Must admit I am not particularly a club person, I did join one near Thundersley once but had to stop going because of my partners job would mean that she’d get home from work and have to go straight out again so it just wasn’t viable to continue going. This club is a lot nearer for us and that really suits us big time, now we can get there easily and not have to rush around.

Laindon club night March 27th 8pm Womens Institute, Samuel Road, SS16 6EZ
IPK London.uk SEARS Foundation Licence course is coming soon SEARS working with Essex Ham to help people looking to take the Foundation  Exam. The Essex Ham course is online , the difference with us is that should you  experience any problems then contact me , and one of the committee will contact  you and either help you on the telephone or in person. This also keeps your costs  down. You need to buy the RSGB foundation manual (£6 ) and we would be grateful if you  were to give a donation to Essex Ham at the end of your course. The cost of the  exam is £27.50 , but we won’t put you in for the exam if we feel you could benefit  from extra tuition. That way you should only have to take it once. We have to hire a room for two hours for the actual exam , this costs £30. We split  this amongst the candidates taking the exam so if there are 6 then it’s £5 each ; if it’s  just you it’s £30. There is a practical assessment for which you need to attend our event in Rayleigh  on May 10th.  In summary the worst cost is £6 + £30 ( max, probably less) + £27.50 = £63.50 plus  voluntary donation to Essex Ham. You can contact them via Sears is a nice little club in the Thundersleigh area of Essex, it has been in existance for 30+ years and is run by good helpful and understanding amateurs. They have regular field days during the summer months   and let’s not forget that they run the very successful Canvey Rally every February. They meet on the second Tuesday of the month in a nice little hall at The White House, Kiln Road, Benfleet SS7 1BU, his is another of those clubs that  if you get the chance to visit them then do so. Their first event of 2020 was successful (the afore mentioned Canvey Rally) their first field event looks like being Rayleigh Windmill on the 10th May. We were members there before but with work commitments getting there from Dagenham was just too much of a rush, but we hope to visit them again soon, and maybe they could visit us in Laindon too for a club night all things are  possible I suppose. At both clubs we help people just starting out on their amateur radio adventure and that will always continue, so remember Sears 2nd Tuesday of the month and the Laindon Radio club on the last Friday of the month, newbies welcome at both events.
Okay, I hear you asking why am I promoting SEARS on my Laindon page, good question, well a good question requires a good answer so you’ll just have to put up with this answer as I cannot find a good one lol, It is my belief that Laindon Radio Club is promoting the new SEARS Amateur training, in fact Amateur Radio courses in the Laindon, Basildon and indeed South Essex area’s has been a long time coming anyway, I know these guys and know they will give a good service all round, can’t say fairer than that can I. Actually as a club SEARS are very active and have a great club night on the second Tuesday of the month,
