A Little News

Firstly a warm welcome to Joe 2E0JEX who has been mad enough to join us. Joe is studying hard for his full exam at the moment under Kev's watchful gaze.
At the moment we are in the early planning stages for the 2010 Dxpedition. Several ideas are being discussed at the moment and we hope to be going out to a Scottish Island in the September of next year. June is going to be a very busy month for all of us. We will be erecting Barrie's SteppIR at the contest site in the next fortnight and will follow up with a social event there the following weekend. Members continue to take part in the Club Championships during May whilst we plan for some of the bigger contests during the coming weeks.

Last Night's Contest

Mark was just one of our members spending May Bank Holiday Monday taking part in the Club Championship 80M Contest. It was the SSB leg last night. Both Mark and Brian found it easier to "search and pounce" rather than hold a run frequency. Conditions were fairly good and plenty of stations were taking part.

Listening Out For Mike

Mike M0PRL will be activating the Club callsign this bank holiday weekend. He will be over in Hull and will be using his Buddipole and his Elecraft K3. He will be mainly active on 20 metres.
