This is our second DF Night of 2012 around the county of East Lothian. The “fox”, this time GM4IKT no doubt will find a good hiding place and then he will transmits 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.


MORSE TRAINING…Starts 18th October

I have now booked two weeks in October to start the Morse Training using the Koch method. If there is enough response on these dates I will book further dates. For information: The last training took a total of 25 weeks to complete.

Dates Booked in the Port Seton Community Centre
THURSDAY      18th OCTOBER 2012      19:00 to 21:00   RESOURCES ROOM 1
THURSDAY      25th OCTOBER 2012      19:00 to 21:00   RESOURCES ROOM 1
The reason the day has changed to Thursday is due to my work commitments making Monday nights difficult to attend.
If you are interested I look forward to seeing on the 18th October….
