Not long to go now until our trip to the Isle of Arran (EU-123). We will be arriving there on the 18th of September and leaving on the 25th of September. Hopefully we will have *some* bands operational on the 18th but expect us to be in full flow from the 19th.
This time there are 13 of us going including four members of the Workington Club and Brendan, EI6IZ will also be joining us.
We will be trying to operate on all bands and modes will include SSB, FM, CW, RTTY and PSK. Hopefully we will be able to include some operation on 6m and 2m as well.
The location is on the south of the island, overlooking Pladda and Ailsa Craig and given decent weather it should be a wonderful time. There are plans for some portable operation and SOTA.
Equipment wise, we will be using 4 Elecraft K3's with amplifiers and a Yaesu FT2000D. Most of the aerials will be verticals and we intend to experiment with phasing these where possible.
The callsign will be MS0SCG and we hope to work as many of you as possible. The logs will be available on our website (http://www.m0scg.org.uk) daily so you will be sure that you are in the log.
