GM4DMA (‘LIVING DAGEROUSLY’ SIR RAN FIENNES LIFE – EXPLORER)
This coming Tuesday (18th), at Then Eden Theatre Inverness, this biographical film is being shown about Sir Ran Fiennes’ life, the explorer. Included in the film there are a fair number of clips of HF radio operations, and within the clips are Laurence KL7L (GM4DMA when he and his previouos wife – also licenced, were based in Aberdeenshire). Indeed, WoSARS was fortunate to have a talk by Laurence in the early 80’s as to the equipment used for HF communications; the mainstay of many of their expeditions from the early 70s to the 2000s. The trailer for the film has a short CW message to be decoded. ABW Laurence hopes to attend and meet up with Ran. see CALENDAR for further information.
