A Winning Streak!

Glad to report that we won first place in our country in last years IARU contest. Lets hope we do as well in this years event even if the weather forces us into an indoor location!

IARU HF World Championship 2007

The weekend 14/15th July sees one of the big contests of the year. The IARU HF Championships lasts a full 24 hours and this will be the third year we have taken part. This year we will return to our field at Quernmore, which is the first location we operated from in 2004. This year the bands should be extremely busy despite the terrible WWV reports of the last few months. Careful attention will focus on stations operating within their bandplans so one mode does not interfere with another. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and we anticipate a good weekend!

A Good Addition To Our Collection

Ian G0VGS has jut put an order in for the New Elecraft K3. He hope to take delivery of it in September, maybe in time for SSB Field Day ;-) Hopefully it will see plenty of action during the next few years and maybe a few more of these radios will appear with other group members! Meanwhile we are busy planning for the 2 big contests in July, the IARU and later IOTA which will see us again at Sunderland point.
