    Yeah, nobody wants to eat that rubbish,

    Warning: If there is any salad, I’ll make sure Duncan re-plants it.

    As already confirmed to Cambell, I will be at a wedding in Englandshire Wed/Th/Fri, and not heading back to GM until some time on Saturday. I will try to get down to the site by Saturday evening but if I´m home late, it´ll be first thing Sunday.

    Due to my lack of antenna setup and operating, feel free to put me in whenever on Sunday as hopefully I´ll be reasonably awake.

    As things stand, I believe I´m providing the 15m antenna/mast/hardware/coax. This can either be passed on to a ¨volunteer¨ to take possession off earlier in the week, or I can drop it all of at DXC QTH. If someone can take it, it can all go on roof bars if need be, with the base,clamps,ropes etc going inside a car.

    One thing I would say is whoever puts the yagi up, if at all possible, put it at 40′ rather than 30´. Quite often if we are short of time, I have put this at 30’instead of 40´. I did so last year and although the band was heaving, I did notice that the JA´s were not that strong despite several people reporting big sigs from them in the online write-ups. I can only conclude this was the lack of height affecting long-haul propagation so even a 10′ increase should help.

    See you all there. Looking forward to it.

    There must be more takers for this fun event.

    CQWW SSB has to be one of the easiest contests to take part in so its great to “cut your teeth on” and there’s always space for people to have a go on a massive station. GM2T is a world class station that uses monoband antennas on all bands with the best of equipment in the shack.

    As mentioned in the original post, people are welcome to visit and have a cuppa and a tour of the station. People are also welcome to help build and disassemble the station. This is a massive task so many hands make light work and whilst there are a core of experienced station builders, people willing to help and learn are great to have. We even welcome people who come along just to make the team a cuppa or bring a packet of biscuits. These things make the team members feel that the whole club is behind them.

    So, come on guys, support your club in any way you can, we’re doing this on behalf of the whole club aswell as it being fun..

    Guys, there will be an informal meeting on Tuesday evening from around 7:15pm in The Thorntree. Should anyone have any questions prior to the contest, Tuesday is the time to ask them.

    See most of you there.


    Alex MM3ZQX

    I will certainly be there one of the days, not sure yet which day, will be able to confirm by midweek.
    I’m happy to help out anywhere.


    Good luck in the contest.
    I am having a go at single op low power on 20m.
    Will try to work you if at all possible.
