    October brings the CQWW SSB Contest from Barns Ness Lighthouse. 01:00 28th – 24:00 29th.

    The whole weekend begins on Thursday 26th afternoon as that is when we begin to load the vans and towers. The work starts in earnest at first light on Friday 27th and this is when we will begin building the stations.

    The contest starts at 1am on Saturday morning and runs for 48 Hours. We require 2 stations at GM2T to me manned at all times.

    The station will be dismantled at first light on Monday 30th, transported and all equipment stowed. This is usually completed by 3pm.

    What can you do for your club ? Well, you can help with all of the above. It really is a massive effort and the more people that help, the easier it is for all. This really is an excellent opportunity to do and learn so much from antenna building / erection to operating a large world class station. If you are a bit mic shy, this is ideal for getting over that as the contest exchange is very simple.

    There will be a core of people there for the entire duration so if people could please come and help us as these core of people will get very little sleep and will be tired. It really doesn’t matter what you come to do, whether it is to build, operate, make tea or just visit. All of these are greatly appreciated. After all this is a club event, come and support it. Please let me (Cambell MM0DXC) know your intentions as it really helps us arrange programmed rest time for the core team.

    See you there.

    It is a great contest and yes it can be hard going over the 48hour period but it is also fun as well.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated so why not come along
