With repairs almost finished to beam and masts Sands now look forward to a busy few weeks ahead. Two of the major contest are coming up, the IARU 24 hour contest in 3 weeks, which we will run from the contest site and IOTA at the end of July. We will be active in IOTA from our usual spot at Sunderland Point for the fourth year running, thanks to the generosity of the residents there.
Matt M0MOS is hoping to air MS0SCG from the Isle of Arran at some point in July, more details nearer the time.
Mike M0PRL will be working in the Antarctic at Rothera Base towards the end of the year for a short while. He will be on air as much as his job allows and we will keep you informed what callsign he hopes to use as soon as we know. He hopes to run a blog/website whilst he is out there and will update via the Sands Blog also.
