Julian GM7MTK ‘Dishes’ Out The Contacts On HF

Hello Jack

I saw your post about the quorum numbers for the AGM.  I have to give my apologies. Eileen and I have been in the USA for a month so far and are not back until 20th May.

Unfortunately, not getting much chance to play radio but I did get to use the HF Discone at the Titan Missile Museum.

April 2022 – Julian GM7MTK Operating

Here’s a picture Eileen took of me at the Titan Missile Museum HF discone.  I was only using 10w. Conditions weren’t great, but I did get about 8 QSOs all in continental USA with the best DX being Florida.

Stirling and District ARS are holding an Open Day Extravaganza on Sunday 3rd October at their Shack, which will be available to operate from 11am with tea and coffee. The programme includes a midday BBQ and there will be a Boot Sale (£10 for pitches) in the grounds. 2pm features a talk by Gavin Nesbitt on how to   “Improve your QSO Count on VHF and above”. Gavin is a key member of CambHams so brings a lot of experience in all things VHF+. To cap it off there will be an ARDF completion around the Estate in the afternoon.

The Club is located at Unit 68, Bandeath Industrial Estate, Throsk, Stirling FK7 7NP. Derails from  Nathan at nuttallnj@gmail.com

Sadly we report that John GM4PLI has become a silent key. He was a long standing member of WoSARS and was always good for a chat on GB3CS or PA. John was unfortunate to never have good health, but soldiered on as best he could. John’s Funeral is on Monday 4th Oct at 11am at Dalnotter Cremetorium – More information – HERE .

From John GM0KTO (Saturday 2nd Oct – 1734hrs) :-

“………….Alan Stark, GM0BUE, whose QTH was in Kilsyth, became a Silent Key on Thursday 9 September, 2021. He had become a victim of COVID-19.

His brother, John, thinks that Alan might have been a former member of WoSARS.
The funeral is on Saturday 9 October, at New Monkland Cemetery, Condorrat Road (B802), Glenmavis.  09.15. Church Service 10.00, followed by a buffet.
I was privileged to work GM0BUE on 6m FM, possibly through GB3SL, while walking the dogs in Alexandra Park. This was quite some time ago and certainly before lock-down……………”
