This will make our third Elecraft K2 built by Sands members! Here you can see the start of Gary's K2. He is busy assembling the main boards at the moment. Other K2's have been built by Ian and Kev. The ideal thing about this radio is that it can be tailored to your own operating needs. Kev's transceiver is geared to QRP SSB where as Ian has designed his as a QRP CW transceiver with matching 100w PA and auto ATU built into a matching K2 enclosure. The possibilities are endless and the small size of the radio means it is ideal for mobile and portable use.For more information on this radio please visit www.elecraft.com

Dear Fellow Contester,
The CQ WW Contest Committee is discussing whether use of real-time
contest scoreboards is likely to convey information about band
openings and profitable tactics to an extent that participants using
the scoreboards should be categorized as assisted. The 2006 CQ WW contest
rules have already been published and they will govern the 2006 contests.
We welcome your comments on this, and suggest the possibility of also
sending the comments to the CQ-Contest reflector so that others can
see them and possibly follow up.
Comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
CQ WW Director
For the CQ WW Committee

The results are in and we are very pleased with the results! We came 17th in our section which is certainly an improvement on last year. The aim, of course, is to build on this for next year and maybe make the first ten!

A few of us are off down to the Rochdale Rally this saturday We don't have a table there this year, just going down to pick up a few things for the group and have a general look round. Hopefully a good day out will be had by all!
