GB2RS – New Sunday Evening Broadcast For Glasgow by Michael 2M0GUI

From Michael 2M0GUI………….

“Beginning this Sunday, there is to be a new GB2RS News Broadcast, complementing the current Broadcasts in the locality. This broadcast will take place at 1830hrs local time on 145.525MHz, covering the Glasgow area, meaning those who are unable to tune in on a Sunday morning may find this a more convenient time. The broadcast will come from the station 2M0GUI in Newton Mearns, and will be followed by an opportunity to call in on an ad-hoc net.”

Good luck Michael with the new Broadcast!
