Events

Our club meets every month, normally on the third Tuesday. Our meetings typically involve a radio based talk or presentation followed by a chance to catch up over a cuppa.

Do you have an interesting radio related topic to share?  We are always looking for interesting presentations and ideas for our club meetings.  If you have a story to tell and fancy sharing some interesting aspect of our hobby then please get in touch with our Membership Secretary by emailing membership@verulam-arc.org.uk.

    Presented by Stan Ames, this talk follows on from his earlier presentations about radio interception and secret stations in the St Albans area.  It concerns the spies sent to Britain by the German Secret Service, The Abwehr, some of which operated or were caught in the St Albans area.

    All of the spies sent to Britain were caught or gave themselves up with the exception of one who's interesting story will be revealed.

    The majority became double agents who were valuable in allied deception operations.  The use of radio interception and direction finding in their detection and capture will be discussed.  The talk will last one hour with about 10 minutes at the end for questions and discussion.
