LEFARS Report Report

LEFARS collected their RSGB Regional Club of the Year Award, sponsored by Waters & Stanton and Jeff Stanton was full of praise:

“It was our great pleasure to welcome John & John from LEFARS to our Open Day on Sunday. Our whole motive in sponsoring both the Regional Club of the Year and now the whole National Competition is to encourage those selfless radio amateurs who do all the hard work at their local Clubs and to grow their membership. The representatives who have come along from Essex CW Club, Chelmsford ARS and now Loughton & Epping Forest ARS over the past 3 years are shining examples to us all!”
