It is a busy time for us at the moment with the trip to Jura being only just over a month away. We have hired a transit van for the trip which will be an immense help with the amount of gear we are taking and the cost, including fuel, is very reasonable! All equipment is being checked over and various lists prepared to make sure everything is accounted for. Information about the event is now on the home website and on QRZ.com under MSoSCG.
Meanwhile we have HF SSB Field Day coming up on the 6/7th September. This promises to be one of the busiest weekends for radio this year. We will, again, be located at Barrie's G1JYB, thanks again to his and Kathy's generosity. We also hope to be joined by Chris and Bex, who are hoping to travel up from Coventry for the weekend, it will be great to have them on board again for a major contest! This year we will again run in the restricted section which means a single element antenna and no more than 100 watts. Field Day will also give us a last chance to check out the Spiderbeam, masts and any other equipment going to Jura to make sure all is in order.
Finally the transfer of our homepages to the new server went very smoothly and hopefully you will find them informative and a lot faster to browse. Oh ....nearly forgot...congratulations to Faris M6FAZ who passed his intermediate licence exam with flying colours last week!
