GB2RS NEWS FOR SCOTLAND (Edited by Peter GM4DTH)
We start this section with a reminder of the very sad news that Ian McPhedran, GM3GTQ passed away two weeks ago. We send our condolences to his family at this sad time. Ian was lately a member of the West of Scotland Amateur Radio Society and a regular participant in the net following the 10.00 am GB2RS News Sunday broadcasts in the Glasgow Area. Funeral Arrangements are confirmed as this Tuesday, the 5th of March at 11.30am at Clydebank Crematorium.
A reminder that tomorrow’s Tonight@8 (6th March) webinar covers the subject of VHF National Field Day from both the organisers viewpoint and the Lothians Radio Society having fun in participating as a contestant.
