Once again CPSARC will be taking part in the CQWW SSB contest at the end of October from Barns Ness Lighthouse to the East of Dunbar.
We are inviting all members of CPSARC to attend this event and help take part in the contest. This help can manifest itself in many ways.
1, The equipment needs to get to Barns Ness, most of this is already covered but we still need 2 towers to be towed there. We need to be there by 1st light which is realistically 7:30am on Friday 28th October to start building.
2, The station needs to be built. Antennae from 160m to 10m need to be erected, this includes the building of 3 towers, 1 scaffold mast and the running of associated cabling. This needs to be done by 4:30pm at the latest as it starts to get dark and unsafe to work.
The team consists of MM0DXC, MM0JXI, M0RNR, GM4UYZ, MM0MRM, GM4GZW, MM5AHO, MM0FZV, G3UJE, MM0YMG, MM0VTV, MM0GZA, GM4IKT, MM0KTC, MM0GTU and MM0VPR.
We will be active in RSGB IOTA Contest 30-31 July 2011

Having achieved an excellent 3rd place in the Island DXpediton section last year, we continue to promote and encourage contesting at a high level with newly licensed and less experienced radio amateurs.
We’ve been going to Tiree to take part in this contest since 1998 and we’re grateful to our friends on the island for their hospitality and generosity over all these years.
Photos are in the gallery now.
