On Saturday 2nd June,
LSWC are holding a used equipment sale in Aisthorpe Village Hall.
Check in of items is from 11am. Refreshments will be available from 12pm.

On Thursday 15th February 2018, club members Roger (G3PVU), Les (G1LQB), Steve (M5ZZZ), Alistair (M0TEF) and Peter (2E0FGA) installed the Hy-Gain TH-5, 5 element, 3 band (10m, 15m and 20m) beam antenna at the Lincoln Shortwave Club site. Pam (G4STO) kindly prepared lunch for the team.
Alistair (M0TEF) reported performance was good with some big signals coming in from the states.
An added bonus was an air display from the Red Arrows, who are based at RAF Scampton. Find out more about the Red arrows here.
Lincoln Shortwave Club is delighted to announce to members that with agreement from the committee it has just purchased an SDRplay RSP2 SDR receiver for the club shack.
The RSP2 receiver covers 1KHz to 2GHz (VLF > Microwaves> and besides having three software selectable antenna inputs it also has an amazing 10MHz bandwidth.
Using a large number of readily available software applications with the RSP2 makes this an extremely capable general coverage receiver.
The receiver will be installed in the shack in the next couple of weeks and we will organise some training sessions for club members who are not familiar with the hardware & software but wish to experience it.
If you want any more information about the RSP2 from SDRplay please see the link below:
