On behalf of the commitee of  Joey Dunlop Foundation a big thank you to all concerned for assisting with the station this weekend.

We have a small stack of QSL cards to send off to the bureau… thanks to fair band conditions and a fair amount of determined operators 🙂

GB4JDF Sunday 25 August

This Sunday we will once again be operating the special callsign GB4JDF on behalf of the Joey Dunlop Foundation. Volunteer operators are required – so if you have an hour or so to spare please come along and show your support.

We will be operating from the Mike Hailwood Riders Centre behind the TT Grandstand in Douglas. Hopefully using voice and PSK we will attempt to contact as many stations as possible between 9am and 6pm.

Contact Dave Cain 2D0YLX or Stuart Hill GD0OUD for further information, or see qrz.com.

Foundation Course and Exam   1 comment

Good luck to all candidates this weekend – I am sure that you will all learn enough to get your first “ticket”.

Remember to ask questions on anything that you are unsure of – there is no such thing as a silly question!

See you all this Saturday at 10am 🙂
