DF NIGHT this Friday 13th May 2016

DF NIGHT — Friday 13th May
Meet @ 18:30 for 19:00 start at the Car Park opposite the Dragon Way Chinese Restaurant, Port Seton

Cost: £2.00 per person for Club Funds

Map of Hunt Area is provided plus rules. Can also be found on the club website under downloads.

This is our second DF Night of 2014 around the county of East Lothian. The “fox”, this time MM0DXC no doubt will find a good hiding place and then he will transmits for 30 secs every 5 minutes starting at 19:00. The DF Hunt finishes at 20:45 where we retire to the Thorntree Inn for the DF Hunt debrief.

Easy to find… I can assure you it is not, East Lothian throws up some strange radio transmissions which can send you on a wild goose chase….

So do you want an evening of good fun well come along and join in. I hope you all will do.

“Barnton Quarry, Air Defence of the UK” – Talk by Grant More MM0MHA

Venue: Resources Room 1 – Port Seton Community Centre, South Seton Park, Port Seton EH32 0BQ

Date Friday 22nd April 2016

Time: 19:00 to 21:00

Grant has offered to deliver a talk on this mysterious site on Corstorphine Hill. I for one never ever knew it existed which for me makes it more intriguing.

There is a major project running to restore this site to its original state with fully working and original equipment of which Grant is heavily involved in.

This looks like it will be a fabulous and revealing talk so I hope that you will all make a huge effort to attend. It is open to anyone who may be interested.
