Meeting Dates

Join us for some basics of contesting and some practice.  Over the next few months a few contests and other similar things are going on that you might like to try, such as VHF/UHF field days and the WWFF activation weekend.  We will show you how to use some software and some techniques to get your confidence up and be competitive.

In order to participate in the practical aspect please bring along a handheld with 2m capability.  We will use 2 simplex frequencies – 146.425 and 146.525 -(no offsets) so it might be an idea to  program them in before hand or ensure you know how to drive your rig so you can QSY between them on the night.  A pen/pencil and notepad or paper might be useful also as you will be doing some logging.

Your contest master for the evening will be Nigel VK5NIG and comic relief will be Stuart VK5STU.

C U then!
