SAD NEWS – Bob GM4FIB passed away yesterday 12/11/2014

Hi All,

I know that many of you knew Bob but sadly he passed away yesterday afternoon (12/11/2014). He has not been well for awhile.

Bob for me was my huge encouragement to get my speed up on CW and pushed me really hard to get me back to the level that I can do now.

He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him and our deepest sympathie go out to his family at this time.

Once I have further details of the funeral arrangements I will send out an email and also post them on the website.

Funeral Arrangements below:

WILSON Robert Beattie (Bonnyrigg) Peacefully, at Midlothian Community Hospital, on November 12, 2014, Robert, dearly beloved husband of the late Margaret (nee Fisher), much loved dad of Ian and the late Bobby, loved grandad (dede) of Ian and Dean and a dear father-in-law of Debbie.

CQWW SSB Contest this weekend 25/26th October

The club is once again taking part in the CQWW SSB contest in the Multi-2 Section.
The contest runs for 48 hours starting at 01:00 BST on Saturday 25th October and finishes at 23:59 UTC on Sunday 26th October.

We are setting up on the Friday arriving at 08:00 in the morning and dismantling on the Monday morning 28th October.

Why not come down to Barns Ness Lighthouse, Dunbar and see a big station in action, if you would like to try operating and dealing with the pile-ups then we will certainly let you have ago. If you don’t wish to operate then getting a visit from others is a great boost to everyone.

See fuller details on the website forum under the banner CQWW SSB 2014
