DF NIGHT — this Friday 11th May

**** NEW MEETING LOCATION *****

This is our first DF Night of 2018 around the county of East Lothian. The “fox”, this time is still to be confirmed but hoping Ricky GM1PLY will be available to do it and 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.
