The Sheffield Amateur Radio Club's communications trailer now has its very own TV channel thanks to the British Amateur Television Club who have most generously allocated SARC this special live channel.
From now on this new channel will be used to stream live TV from special events attended by the SARC's own communications trailer GX3RCM (Radio Communications Module) whenever a high speed internet link is available. The first of these could be at the LAMFEST mini radio rally at the Elsecar Heritage Centre, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, on Sunday 23rd June, depending on a broadband link being available.
The following Sunday, 30th June, sees GX3RXM live on internet TV from the 'Owls in the Park' Sheffield Show in Hillsborough Park, Sheffield. A high speed internet link has already been arranged down which SARC will be able to stream live pictures of the various show activities, including all the action within the Communications Module.
This trailer was formerly the Radio Society of Great Britain's GB4FUN travelling exhibition and demonstration vehicle. RSGB has generously donated it to the Sheffield Amateur Radio Club who intend to take the exciting hobby of Amateur Radio out to the wider public, at summer festivals, in schools and at other events such as Scout Jamborees.
