MORSE NIGHT – 14th October – 19:30 to 21:30

MORSE NIGHT IS NOW THE 14th OCTOBER
PORT SETON RESOURCE CENTRE (Community Centre)
RESOURCES ROOM 1 19:30 to 21:30
 I have changed the October night in the Community Centre from the 21st October to the 14th October. The reason being is that I am not available on the 21st and I have promised that I would put a night together for taking the learning of Morse Code further and I don’t want to let you down.

 The objective of the evening is to gauge the level of interest of learning Morse Code to the level it can successfully be used to make a CW contact, whether it is a standard QSO or Contest QSO

 I hope a few of you will turn up as you have all been mentioning it needs to be done…..

 See you all there then….

Ron Brown GM4IKU now Silent Key & Funeral Arrangements

I have just received a phone call to say that Ron GM4IKU has passed away. I do not know any other details as yet but as and when I will let you know.

Ron was a great friend to many of us and he will be sadly missed by us all.

Difficult to know what to say at these times but as always our deepest sympathies go out to Aileen his XYL, Kenneth his son and all the rest of the family.

RIP Ron your suffering is now over.

=============================================================

I have received a phone call from Aileen, Ron’s XYL about Ron’s funeral arrangements. Note there will be no announcements in any papers at the family’s request but Aileen has asked if I will pass on the arrangements to you all.

 Arrangements:

             FRIDAY 23rd SEPTEMBER 2011 —  10:00 —  MORTONHALL CREMATORIUM

11th Nov — Discussion on “WINTER PROJECT”

Geoff MM5AHO is first delivering his talk on the 2011 Lighthouse Adventures and when he is finished we are going to use the time to get your feedback and input on the Winter Project that Geoff has already posted as a FORUM. Please read the Forum and update it with any comments before the evening so that a general feel can be obtained on the idea.

The aim of the discussion is to decide if we think it is a feasible project and if so where do we go from there. Remember it is your club so feedback is important.

Thanks in advance

Bob GM4UYZ
