A big Welcome to Steve Wilson and Will Sparkes who joined our Society last evening.
Monday evening the 17th June, the Club's annual 2mtr direction finding competition will take place.
All participants to meet at the lay-by at the top of Roman Road, Bleadon Hill, Weston super Mare NGR ST359579, Lat. 51 18.953N Lon. 2 55.328W. Every entrant must start at this location.
You will need to be at the lay by in time to get set up and to receive the first transmission which will be made at 7.30pm on 145.350 MHz with FM, using the Club Call sign G8WSM.
Further similar transmissions will then be made every 10 minutes i.e. at 7.40, 7.50, 8pm etc. each being 2 minutes in duration.
The final transmission will be made at 9.00 pm when the Fox will disclose his location and any details of a possible RV location for a drink etc.
Our usual meeting room at the Social Club will be available for those members who choose not to participate in the DF contest.
On June 22-23 WSMRS will again be hosting a stand at the event - as we have in previous years. Not a massive event in terms of radio operation, but a great opportunity to promote your club to the general public.
Some considerable work has already been done to try and make the event successful, but there is still more to do over the weekend itself. Not least setting up and taking down the Caravan and Display but also helping to man the stand during the event.
It would be great to see club members visit the Caravan during the 2 days - but even better if you could lend a hand and "lighten the load" a little for those who always pitch in. I'm sure that the core team would agree that any help is appreciated :)
If you are able to help then please let me know and I can give Dave and the others some idea of what resources might be available.
On a related note the National Field Day was a Success last weekend although it's a little early to know how well we did - we will issue details soon.
Thanks in anticipation for your help to make this a great event!
