GT1IOM At National Hamfest 2013


Edit 06/10/2013.  The members who travelled to Newark raised £92:06 in sales / commission from their table within the ‘car boot’ area. This money will go towards the running of the Manx repeaters see……

In addition to a great weekend away those of us who travelled were amazed at the warm welcome we recieved from amateurs from all around the British Isles. Apparently we have to go again next year.

IOMARS Contest Logs / Certificates

Please have a look at the <<<<<Contest Time!>>>>> tab at the top of the site. It has been appended with three log files from 1990 when the club took part in 70MHz, 70cm and 2m contests… something which we are attempting to get back into.

There is also a link to a file containing several certificates from the same period… we used to do rather well – and hopefully we can do once again!

Unwanted equipment?

Six members of the society are heading to the Newark hamfest on 26th September 2013.

They are having a stand at the show  the intention being to advertise the club and the work of the Islands repeater keeper Dave GD4HOZ.

Some items will also be offered for sale to raise the funds needed to assist the repeater keeper in his work.

If you have any unused / obsolete / broken / unwanted equipment would you consider donating it to the cause?


Contact Andy Morgan GD1MIP for more details.  email or telephone 412 711



Thanks all
