International Museums on the air weekend June 18, 2016, 7:00am – June 19, 2016, 2:30pm

Once again we are taking part in this fun event as GB2MOF from The Education Building next to the entrance to Hangar 1 at East Fortune Museum of Flight. The team will arrive at approximately 1pm on Friday to build the station. We usually do some “testing” once its built. By testing, I mean a couple of hundred QSO’s. Main operating times : 8am Saturday till 5pm. 8am Sunday till approx 3:30pm when the station will be dismantled. Everyone is welcome to visit the station and if you have a licence, get on the air. We are usually on 40m and 20m all day. Please come along and support your radio club whether it’s a visit for a cup of tea and catch up with old friends. Help the team build and dismantle the station. Turn up and operate or just come and see what Amateur Radio Special Event Stations are all about. You will be more than welcome.

Landles Fairbairn GM4XZZ – Silent Key

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Landles died very suddenly after suffering a severe heart attack on Wednesday 25th May 2016. I also understand that he will be buried in Eyemouth Cemetery but as yet I do not know on what day or time that it will happen. As soon as I know I will pass the information on. If anyone else finds out then please pass the information around.

Landles was one of life’s characters and a gentle giant. There are so many stories that could be told about Landles that it would fill multiple books. He will be sadly missed by all.

Our deepest sympathies and thoughts go out to Jan and the family at this time.
