IOTA This Weekend
Yes folks its that time of year again and the weather forecast sounds a bit grim. It is amazing how quickly the year has passed and IOTA 2007 sees us back at Sunderland Point for this 24 hour contest. We will probably set up the antennas and masts on Friday evening but, again, it depends on the weather. Kev is cooking for the crew on Saturday evening and has promised a "spicy" sausage casserole! The new 50' mast has arrived and so have the QSL cards for the GB2AOS event earlier this year. The plan is to write the QSL cards over the weekend while anyone not currently operating the contest has time on their hands. Paul is providing us with a microwave link to the university enabling us to have internet access to GB7MBC for DXCluster information. The residents have no broadband facilities and this is the only way we can use the dxcluster as "packet" access is no longer possible.
