Many thanks to all that have shown interest, a few at the club, others E Mailed me, will be arranging a contest meeting soon on an informal club night and we can all discuss and move forward. Not seen next years contest calendar as yet but know of Three we can have a go at as a group, First possible one in May.
Before we hold a meeting on 2m/6m where HF will have to be mentioned to avoid any clashes as 2 events in the same month would not go down too well at my QTH.
Therefore it would greatly help if we could come to an understanding of the dates for NARC next year’s VHF/HF field events.
I would suggest that Malcom confirm the annual HF CW and “SSB” events.
Where Andy and Rod should converse and pick some VHF events for circulation before the meeting for discussion and hopefully agreement and finally “commitment”.
PS: I would love NARC to do IOTA (possible training event) as it brings together the CW/SSB operators in the same field with the possibility of 1 or 2 HF stations and if we really wanted to get daring we could include a social B&Q in the evening HI.
To those who have not seen this weeks newsletter, a contest meeting is to be held at the club on Weds 31st October. Please all those that are interested come along and give some input. We are off to a strong start with several more people now added , we have about 12 which is great news.
We will be discussing possible contests we can go for and maybe the possibility of running 6 mtrs and 70 cms.
