IOTA 2007 Results

Again this year saw us improve on our performance in the IOTA contest. We managed to achieve 21st place and came 2nd out of the UK stations in our particular class. Not bad for a fairly modest setup and there are many things that can be improved on for the 2008 contest

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Season's greetings from all at Sands. May it be an enjoyable holiday for everyone and we hope 2008 will be a good year for all. We look forward to plenty of good contests and hope to work as many of you as we can during the contest season! Good luck and good DX!

Its That Time of the Year Again!

Its Christmas again ( well nearly ) and we are out for our Christmas party later this week. Sand's members will be joined by many friends we have met over the last few years. Unfortunately Chris and Bex will not be able to make it from their new home in Coventry and Bob G1OCK will be away in Nottingham. We are trying a new venue this year, which just happens to be very convenient for Mark and Andrew who are only a stone's throw away from the pub involved ;-)
No contests until the start of 2008 but we have plenty planned for the New Year and look forward to our DXpedition to the Isle of Jura and some serious contests in coming months!
