Club Barbeque 30th July

Our club barbecue was held at the Pyewipe on 30th July, and was much enjoyed by the club members that attended, as well as several members from the Lincoln ShortWave Club. Members who hadn’t seen each other in some time took the opportunity to have a good catch-up! We were also pleased to welcome Mark Burrows, our RSGB regional representative to the event.

Congratulations!

Congratulations to Lee, who recently passed his Foundation Licence exam. Lee is now the proud holder of the callsign M7LAH, which we look forward to hearing on the air in due course.

Communism: my part in its downfall

The latest in our series of talks by members took place last night at the shack at the Pyewipe Inn, and was well-attended. Martin, G6BD, gave us a fascinating account of his adventures in the British Army Royal Corps. of Signals during what was clearly a very eventful career!

Special Event Station, GB0NAM, at Newark Air Museum

We were back at the Newark Air Museum during the weekend of 25-26th June, 2022, for the museums' Cockpit Fest. Operating using the Special Event callsign GB0NAM, we were able to make a number of interesting contacts, including a contact with the Croatian amateur radio station, callsign 9A22YOTA, which was being operated remotely from the Friedrichshafen Hamfest as part of the 2022 Youngsters on the Air(YOTA) summer camp (hosted this year by the Croatian Amateur Radio Association in the city of Karlovac, near Zagreb).
