THURROCK ACORNS AMATEUR RADIO CLUB
A small, welcoming amateur radio club based in Grays (Essex, England) close to the town centre. Although it was created primarily for the local Amateur Radio community, the Club welcomes anyone interested in any of the many aspects of Amateur Radio. Please feel free to come to a meeting on the third Tuesday of the month, or contact us.
THURROCK TRAINING TEAM
The Thurrock Training Team consists of a small group of enthusiastic licensed Radio Amateurs dedicated to encouraging more people of all ages to take up The Hobby. The team provides tuition for the Foundation licence and guidance for those wishing to progress to the Intermediate licence and then onto the Full licence.

OUR FIRST EVENT OF THE NEW DECADE
HALF A FIELD DAY
You have heard the expression “Less is More”. Our field day on 18th Jan in Thorndon Country Park was only 3 hours long and only on 2m, but it was twice the success expected for a cold winter’s day. We certainly promoted the hobby with almost every motorist scrutinising us as they entered the park – I suspect they thought we were wheel clampers!
We had contacts on FM, SSB and CW. We even got an impromptu visit from a local ham who heard us and popped down to say hello.
