VHF Field Day – July 1st 14:00 UTC to July 2nd 14:00UTC – NEW LOCAL LOCATION

Hi All,

For a good number of years our VHF Field Day activities have been run from a location just to the south of Castle Douglas, Dumfries & Galloway after we were not allowed to operate from our original site at Longformacus  (change of Farmer who didn’t agree with what we were doing!!!). Due to a massive windfarm located in the middle of the Soloway Firth the site has become unusable.

The original plan for this year was to try out a new site down at the Mull of Galloway but due to change of circumstances we will now be operating locally from Lauder Common.

The site is located just off the B6362 road that runs between Lauder on the A68 and Stow on the A7.

Our locator for the contest is IO85OQ.

Bands being worked:

Full 24 hours – 2M and 70cms

Saturday – 6M up to 22:00 UST

Sunday – Replace 6M with 4M and operate 4M from 09:00UTC

VHF Field Day is a different challenge than HF. Still looking for long distance as distance gives us our points and when added up our Final Score.

Plan at this present time is as follows:

Friday: Leave very early afternoon and head to the site and start to build the three stations – 6M, 2M and 70cms.

Saturday: Complete the build in time for the contest starting at 14:00 UTC (15:00BST)

Sunday :  Contest finishes at 14:00 UTC (15:00BST), then pack up and come home.

The advantage of it being local you can pop along and help and even operate if you only have a couple of hours to spare.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN JOINING US then if you are leave a message on our Facebook page as this will be posted there or drop me an email at gm4uyz@cpsarc.com

DF NIGHT this Friday 12th May 2017

DF NIGHT — Friday 12th 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 first DF Night of 2017 around the county of East Lothian. The “fox”, this time GM1PLY no doubt will find a good hiding place and then he will transmit 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.
