I managed to try some AM during a 10m opening on 30 September and it was a great experience to hear so many AM stations from the US on the band. Rob, W1AEX sent me an e-mail shortly after our QSO. It was great to hear you today on 10 meter AM. The attached mp3 file is a recording of the very fine G5FZ club station as we chatted today. Toward the end of the audio recording you can hear a bit of splatter from the station that was below us, but your signal was very strong so it was … Continue reading →

A meeting tinged with a little sadness on Wednesday 15th August as we said goodbye to Jeremie F4ARU/MoKWP. Jeremie has been a member of the Club for three years or so.
