G3OUL, the earliest days!

 Below are various pictures to stir the memories....

Thanks to Keith, G3NNW, the young chap with the "Michael Cain" glasses, all the rage in 1960, pictured below, at the Freshers' Conferance in 1961, for the picture archive!

Visit to Amateur Radio Exhibition in London

Amateur Radio Exhibition Royal Horticultural Hall 1961

From the registration of the van I believe it belonged to GW3ODI's father?
Hamstead Heath, early am

 I remember it well. Dave Kitson (standing on the right) was driving and for some reason a police motorcyclist stopped us. I think we were moving really slowly puzzling over a map to find our intended place of overnight stay. "What's the problem", he said. Dave thinking very rapidly replied in broken English with a strong French accent said we were looking for "Amstead Eath". The policeman thought for a moment then said... Follow me.. and led us there, were we parked up till morning.

Above: ad hoc G3OUL meeting. I think this might have been in the meatllurgy department?

 

 Below: Three pictures from the Freshers' Conference 1961. G3OUL in the Students' Union entrance hall attempting to recruit new members. We used to borrow equipment from manufacturers.

There's a nice Eddystone receiver with a small KW transmitter. On the left is the club receiver, an AR77 and perched on the transmitter a G3PIY ATU for tuning our long wire which stretched across the road to the Maths Department.
