The club is once again taking part in the RSGB IOTA contest from the Island of Tiree in the Inner Hebrides. The IOTA reference is EU008. If you hear us during the contest we would appreciate working you. The contest bands are 80M, 40M, 20M, 15M and 10M. We can be contacted on all bands using SSB and CW.

We depart the early hours of Friday morning to get the 06:15 ferry to Tiree arriving at 09:35. Once on the Island the first task will be to get the station built and tested on all bands. We will be using MM0CPS up until the contests starts.

Look forward to working you all during the contest….

Bob Purves GM4IKT – Silent Key

It is with deep sadness that I have to report the passing of yet another of our radio clubs amazing characters and a great friend.

Mr Bob Purves (GM4IKT) passed away this afternoon (26/6/17) at 12:20pm.

Bob will be remembered as a family man, a keen aero modeller and radio ham who quietly encouraged lots of the new blood in our club and was always on hand with a vast technical knowledge which he shared freely.

Cambell MM0DXC is in touch with Margaret his XYL and will share details of the funeral as they become available.

RIP OM

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

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.
