A New Member!
We would like to welcome Paul G4TUZ as a new member of Sands. Paul joined us for our weekly meeting last night which, as it happens, was a very busy one. Plenty to discuss including CQWW which is only a few days away. Kev G6FKE and Linda G0YLM have volunteered to keep the troups well fed and watered during this 48 hour contest. It will be interesting to see how conditions compare with the last 2 years, especially on the lower bands in the early hours of the morning. Of course the clocks also go back one hour the same weekend which always throws everybody a bit. We will be using a Yaesu FT1000 MKV at 100w, a Force 12 C3SS beam for 10/15/20m with a trap dipole for the lower bands. Win-Test again will be used throughout the entire contest.
