The Scottish Borders Repeater group membership is well down for this year. Subs are normally due at the AGM in May, but due to the Covid pandemic there hasn’t been an AGM for two years. If you would like to join the group, supporting six repeaters in the Scottish Borders, please go to sbrg.co.uk.

Can you lend a generator? The Kilmarnock & Loudoun ARC Team at Ardrossan are trying to borrow a 240V generator of 5 to 10kVA output for an event in early December. Please email klarcinfo@gmail.com if you can help.
