On Air With MX0SCG

So far it has been a great weekend as we celebrate our fifth birthday! Saturday was a busy day with people coming and going all weekend, including a visit from Paul M1PAF, who came down from the Workington Club. A good time to socialise and to get chance to work some radio under the Club Callsign. Chance, also, to get to grips with the Elecraft K3, Ranger 811H amp and the WinTest software in a relaxed enviroment! First time for Martin M0ZIF to take part in one of our events ( thanks for the chilli sausages as well)
We are operating from the home of our new Chairman, Ian G0VGS, who was voted in for our sixth year as a group. Calm and sunny weather allowed us to get the Force12 HF beam to a reasonable height and contact some good stations. It is also JOTA weekend so there are no shortage of stations on the bands. So far things are going very well and we look forward to a pleasant Sunday playing radio and having a good natter with friends.
