IoM Mini DX’pedition for Dundee ARS   1 comment

Radcom have published a snippet of information that,

“Dundee ARC are planning a small DXpedition to the Isle of Man (EU-116, WAB SC48, Loc IO74SF) between 18 and 25 August. The team will use the club call GT4AAF/P and will be active on all HF bands using SSB, CW and datamodes as well as 6, 4 and 2m. Paul, GM0BKC, Pete, GM1CMF, Colin, GM4JPZ, Scott, MM0SVK, Mark, 2M0LEW, Ally, MM0DRA and Malcom, MM6PAU are planning on meeting up with the Isle of Man club who have been very helpful.”

I have been in touch with Paul GM0BKC for several weeks via email passing information etc. to him for accomodation and the likes. We have agreed to meet up hopefully at an IOMARS Special Event Station and write a feature article for Radcom / Practical Wireless.

More information will be published as and when we have it!

WANTED!! HF and VHF/UHF transceiver   Leave a comment

Garry Brookes GD4IZl/GD8PPU is looking for a reasonably priced radio for use on HF and maybe VHF/UHF. Ideally he would like a portable unit such as FT817/897 or the likes… He doesn’t have a huge budget to spare, but would appreciate a rig of some sort as he is currently between homes in a bedsit in Douglas.

Garry can be contacted through me at manxlotus(at)yahoo.co.uk or contact him on Facebook through our IOMARS Page.

GT1IOM PW 2m Low Power Contest 2012   2 comments

image

Set up at Ballaragh for the first ever contest as GT1IOM. 74 contacts all over the UK and one in France.

Edit ….  and the bitter sweet pill as we later found out.  Spotted by a Sardinian station on the DX cluster.  Not bad for 2.5 watts 2m. A two way QSO would have been nice though.  Andy  GD1MIP
