DF NIGHT this FRIDAY 11th MAY 2018

DF NIGHT — this Friday 11th May

Meet @ 18:30 for 19:00 start at the CAR PARK at the SEAFRONT (Where the old Pond Hall was). When travelling from the east turn 1st LEFT past the Garage & Dentist and drive to the bottom of the road (about 200 yards)
Cost: £2.00 per person for Club Funds

Map of Hunt Area is provided plus rules. Can also be found on the club website under downloads and in the May 2018 Newsletter
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.

I really did get quite a shock when I read John’s article in the May 2018 RADCOM to find out the John had passed away on the 7th April at the age of 97.75 years old.

I have visited John on a number of occasions over the years and he was certainly a real character. He always had some great stories to tell. When you visited John it wasn’t just a 5 minute visit, the one you planned but it could end up 2 to 3 hours later.

He told me he would have loved to have been involved with the Radio Club but unfortunately due to his health he was unable to attend. He did though write a few articles for our Newsletter as away of being involved

As always our deepest sympathies go out to his family at this time. RIP…John

Facebook feed

Unfortunately recent changes to the Facebook API mean that the facebook feed widget which was in the right hand sidebar is no longer able to display the feed from a Facebook group so I’ve had to remove it which is a pity as it was a paid for feature.

You can still see the group on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/cpsarc
