Winter 2016 Volunteer of Note

At the changing of each season, after some discussion, we select one volunteer to recognise as our "Volunteer of Note".  We have chosen volunteer and member of the Board of Directors, Corbin Lippert, as our Winter 2016 VoN. 

Corbin represents the London Amateur Radio Club on our Board of Directors, but has become quite dedicated to the Secrets of Radar Museum.  Corbin not only brings technical radio knowledge to the museum, but he actively engages the LARC membership with the goings-on of the museum.  He's enthusiastic, enterprising, a bit of a handyman, and always looking for new ways to help both organisations thrive.

Thanks for everything you do, Corbin !

LARC Opens its Club Station at SORM

We're thrilled to announce our partnership with the London Amateur Radio Club, who have opened up their club station at our museum.  VE3LS is on the air !  They are typically on-site Saturdays during our open hours, and they'll be running their autumn radio course in our lounge this coming autumn.  Stay tuned for news.  We celebrated their club's official opening on May 18th, at which many long-time SoRM friends and LARC members were treated to museum tours, sunshine, barbecue, and cake.  It was a great day.
