Speaker for club night Wed 8th May 2019 – Paul Gacek W6PNG/M0SNA

May 8th, 2019 by gdars

On the 8th May we had a speaker attending, Paul Gacek W6PNG/M0SNA to talk about his radio activities, Wilderness Activations in Western USA, SOTA activation and the 2016 ARRL National Parks event. Examples of some of his material is on his blog nomadic.blog

Many thanks for an interesting journey across the Western USA and a good mixture of radio, geography, history and encounters with deadly animals!

Also some good information about SOTA that hopefully will encourage some members either to go up local hills to activate them, or to assist SOTA participants to get the contacts they need for activation.
More SOTA information here: sota.org.uk

Many thanks to the members who attended for Paul’s talk.

New Site Layout

September 13th, 2012 by gdars

I have migrated the existing pages from the old site to WordPress so that it’s easier to update and add photos. There may be formatting quirks and photos still to be labelled, but if there are any big problems loading pages then let me know by emailing michael at askewonline.co.uk
