After the event can you send me a copy of your log, I know they are not mandatory but it will enable me to write up some report on what you all managed to achieve plus why not update the club tables and show everyone else what you achieved.

We will be setting up on Friday afternoon in Hanger 1 at the museum from about 13:00 onwards and if you are free and wish to help you will be more than welcome. The aim is to get at least 2 hours operating after the build before the 17:00 Museum closure.
Saturday we hope to be on the air from 08:00 through to 17:00 and Sunday from 08:00 through to 15:30.
The station will consist of 2 x HF stations – one dedicated to 40M and the other 20/15/10M depending on band conditions.
Come along and take part and have some fun working a large station and the hopeful pile-ups.

‘The Changing Face of Antarctic Communications’
Just a reminder that our next Goudie Lecture will take place shortly…..
Mike Gloistein will trace the development of communications from Morse Code to the World Wide Web in his Talk on the 19th June.
Mike joined the British Antarctic Survey as a Radio Officer in 1990 and has been ‘South’ every year since then.
He was awarded the Polar Medal by Her Majesty the Queen in 2004 and with the advent of modern communications, now has the additional responsibility of maintaining all the washing machines on board the Royal Research Ship James Clark Ross!!
We looking forward to meeting Mike and hope you will be able to join us for what is sure to be yet another memorable evening.
Look out for MM0VTV/P this Sunday (10th June 2012) in the PW 2M QRP Contest starting at 09:00 to 16:00 UTC. The aim is to operate from Lauder Common (between Lauder & Stow in the borders). Will be operating primarily on SSB.
The aim with this contest is with 3 watts is to contact as many other stations as possible and as many large Maindenhead squares. The squares are the multiplier so hence the need to contact as many as possible.
A call from any of you would be greatly appreciated and for any newbies then you require to give a signal report, serial number and your Maidenhead locator square i.e. 59 020 IO85MX
Look forward to hearing from you all
