This is our first DF Night of 2019 around the county of East Lothian. The “fox”, this time is Ricky GM1PLY  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.

Talk by Paul Gacek W6PNG/M0SNA – “Wilderness Radio in the Western USA” Friday 26th April 2019 @ 19:00

Talk by Paul Gacek W6PNG/M0SNA – “Wilderness Radio in the Western USA”
Friday 26th April 2019 @ 19:00
Port Seton Resource Centre (Community Centre) – Resources Room 1
South Seton Park, Port Seton EH32 0BQ

A little bit about Paul….
Along with a successful career in California (High Technical), Paul Gacek W6PNG, became an amateur radio operator. Finding that amateur radio challenged his mind and created opportunity to learn new things. Paul discovered SOTA, Summits on the Air, and operating from the field. California has over 4000 SOTA peaks, and that is a good start for W6PNG.
The talk looks like it will be an interesting and fascinating one so I hope you will all turn up and support the event to listen to it.
Usual cost of £2 per head to cover the room hire.
See you all on Friday 26th ……..
