Peter G1FLL sadly became a silent key on the morning of Sunday 17th December 2017.  Peter had been a member of the Lincoln Short Wave Club since the early nineties when we met at the City Engineers Club in Lincoln.  Peter had been on the committee of the club for many years and was always there helping at Special Event Stations and Contests.  Peter will be sadly missed by all at Lincoln Short Wave Club and by many others with whom he came into contact.  RIP.

The pictures below show members of the club at their Christmas Dinner, this year at the Fox and Hounds, Willingham by Stow.  Next year maps will be given out to ensure everyone finds the venue; unfortunately two of our members were within a couple of hundred yards but turned round and went home.  More pictures to follow soon.

Another successful Foundation Exam took place on Saturday 25th November when Charles, Adrian and Robbo passed their exam.  This result is, of course, subject to confirmation by the RSGB.  Les G1LQB was the main Instructor and Pam G4STO and Les were Invigilators.

Another successful Used Equipment Sale was held at the end of October with lots of bargains to be had.  We had our regular visitors from surrounding clubs and some from a little further afield – Hull, York and Barry to name just three.  Bob G7AVU was our auctioneer; he had help from Steve M5ZZZ and Jason G7KPM; Ian G4EVK and Terry G7JFI gladly received the money.  Pam G4STO cooked a few hotdogs and made teas and coffee.

The date for our April sale in 25th April 2018.

Fifteen of us enjoyed Cumberland, ‘Old English’ (not sure which county these were from) and Lincolnshire sausages as part of National Sausage Week.  Weather was inclement (rained all morning) so we retreated to the Village Hall.  Sorry about the quality of the photos.

Help was at hand, Jackie preparing the rolls for the sausages.

I suggested Haggis for our next event but a few noses turned up!  I’ve read somewhere “Don’t fear the haggis. Just think of it as a big, round sausage. That’s what it is anyway.”
