  President's Notes
Chris VK3QB Please note that this month’s General / Annual general meeting has been brought forward one week due to Good Friday falling the third Friday of the month. With the Club year coming to an end, it is a good time to thank the current talented committee for the work they have done over the last year. It has been a pleasure to work with Wayne, Ian, Graeme and Mark over the last 12 months to keep the Club vibrant energised and involved with the latest aspects of amateur radio.
     More in the April edition of the magazine.  

On Saturday the 19 th of July 2014, the Club will be conducting its annual HAMFEST for the sale of new and used electronics and radio equipment. As it was last year, the venue will be at the Cranbourne Community Hall on the corner of Clarendon and High streets, Cranbourne.

  Near Miss for Earth
Fierce solar blasts that could have badly damaged electrical grids and disabled satellites in space narrowly missed Earth in 2012. The bursts would have wreaked havoc on the Earth's magnetic field, matching the severity of the 1859 Carrington event, the largest solar magnetic storm ever reported on the planet. That blast knocked out the telegraph system across the United States, according to University of California, Berkeley research physicist Janet Luhmann.

  New LED 3 Atoms Thick
Researchers at the University of Washington (UW) have demonstrated electro-luminescence in a flexible, mechanically strong construct of the semiconductor tungsten selenide only three atoms thick. The researchers harvested single sheets of tungsten selenide (WSe2) using adhesive tape, a technique invented for the production of graphene.
