RSGB IOTA 2010 Result

The club has been going to Tiree since 1998 to take part in the RSGB IOTA Contest. Achieving 3rd in the DXpedition Section is a massive achievement for all the hard work that has gone in over the years.
It is amazing teamwork putting the station together, setting out our operating tactics then getting this result.
As well as the contest we have had loads of fun and have made lots of friends on the Island. The hospitality they have given us over the years is second to none.

Roll on this year…………………

BT Community Champions Grant

Cockenzie & Port Seton Amateur Radio Club, in East Lothian has been awarded £500 by the BT Community Champions award scheme thanks to the voluntary work of John Innes, a BT employee.
Run by the BT Volunteering team, BT Community Champions awards BT people with funding on behalf of local community groups, charities and organisations where they work on a voluntary basis.

Following the second review in 2010/11, funding has been allocated to a variety of groups who demonstrated how the award would make a difference to their group and benefit their local community. Cockenzie & Port Seton Amateur Radio Club is one of hundreds that applied for an award during review two of the scheme and impressed judges with how they would use their grant.
