Visiting friends

Members of Sands visited our friends at Workington Radio Club last night (26/11/07) and had a great time. We were shown slides and videos relating to their dxpeditions to Skye and Barra. The vertical Moxon aerial was one of the items to take our interest and we may look at that for certain bands in the future ourselves. Our thanks go to all the guys at Workington for a great evening!

Thursday 80M Net

Every thursday we will be taking part in a net on 80 metres for the group. The "Sands net" will start at 20.00 hours on or around 3.662 and last for about an hour. Last night was the first one and although the band was crowded everyone managed to hear one another with Chris M0DWK being a cracking signal from his new location in Warwick. Anyone is welcome to call in, whether they Sands members or not! Our Vice-chairman Ian G0VGS will be in the chair most weeks.
