A number of Crowle Air Cadets attended the recent Radio Technical Skills course run by the South and West Yorkshire Wing Radio Team. The course teaches cadets basic technical skills useful for the operation and basic maintenance of radio equipment.
The course teaches basic practical skills such as how to wire a plug, use a multi-meter and a soldering iron, as well as building on the principles of transmitters and receivers taught on previous courses and introducing more of the theory behind the operation of radios and electronics generally.
Cadet Flight Sergeant D Wheatley attended the course, afterwards he had this to say “The course was really good. The practical side was good and different to what we normally do”.
Radio training is just one of the many opportunities Crowle Squadron offers to its members, both cadets and staff. Air Cadets is a youth organisation open to anyone aged 13-17. It is also open to those over 20 who wish to join as a staff and assist in the running of such activities.
