Breaking News - MHRAC is 40 !!!!
MHRAC celebrated its 40th birthday at the November 2018 meeting.
Roger, G4BVY as the only continuous member of the club throughout it's history gave a brief overview of the club.
"I arrived in Mavern in Summer 1975 before heading off to University and discovered that there was a regular gathering of local radio amateurs who met in the Chase Inn, Upper Colwall, on Thursday evenings. Over the next three summers I got to know these locals well. When I arrived permanently in Malvern in Summer 1978, I started discussions about whether there should be a more formal club in the area. This led to the circulation of this letter:"
