First night of the Quantum Technology Club

The Quantum Technology Club, based at Cottage Lane Mission in Ormskirk, held its first ever meeting last night. The organisers, the Quantum Amateur Radio & Technology Society (QuARTS) said they were extremely happy with the turn-out, twenty five fold turned up and thirteen of them signed up for membership on the spot. Those present enjoyed a hands-on introduction to the Raspberry Pi, presented by Derek (G7LFC), and a few other mini-talks on various subjects. Whilst enjoying the free refreshments and slices of Pizza, the raffle draw took place which saw Barry (G4HDU) win the star prize of a new HF/VHF VSWR meter very kindly presented to the club mt by one of the UK's largest amateur radio dealers, Martin Lynch.
