Islands On The Air contest, GM2T

Well, this time next week, we’ll be on Tiree in the Inner Hebrides for the IOTA contest.

Please listen for and work GM2T, EU008 in the contest. Remember every contact we make with mainland UK is worth 15 points to us. Mainland UK Island Reference is EU005

When we’re running (calling CQ), you can call us.

You’ll hear “Golf Mike Two Tango, Contest”
You’ll call “(Your Callsign)”
We’ll say “(Your Callsign), you’re 5/9 (then your serial number) on Echo Uniform Zero Zero Eight”
You’ll say “Golf Mike Two Tango, you’re 5/9 (our serial number starting at zero zero one) on Echo Uniform Zero Zero Five”
We’ll say “Thankyou, QRZ, Golf Mike Two Tango, Contest”

That will give us 15 points

1. GENERAL

The aim of the contest is to promote contacts between stations in IOTA island groups and the rest of the world, and to encourage expeditions to IOTA islands. The General Rules for RSGB HF Contests do not apply to this event. UK entrants are permitted to use Contest Call Signs (SCC) if they hold a valid NoV from OFCOM.

2. WHEN

12:00 UTC Saturday 25th July to 12:00 UTC Sunday 26th July 2015. The contest always takes place over the last FULL weekend of July.

Back in the land of the living!

Hi Everyone,

After what has been WAY too much time, I’m back in the land of the living. Forced off the air by three house moves in three years (don’t ask……), I was hitting all sorts of barriers, neighbours and antenna stress and so packed all my kit away and pretty much went QRT in 2011. I sold all my stuff in 2012.

But the radio bug instilled in me back in 2006 by Bob and Campbell never really went away. My copies of Radcom keep arriving month by month and I keep reading them.

Last week, I pressed the button on some new gear from ML & S and I hope to be back up and running on HF by the end of next week. There’s something about Amateur Radio for me which has never really gone away…….

I promise I’ll try to be better at getting to things and supporting the club than I was last time around and, assuming my compromise antennas are able to do at least something to get me out, I’ll hopefully start to make a few contacts again!

Hoping everyone’s really well!

Best wishes,

David MM0XDG
