Old Photos

Winding back the years…

Here are a collection of photographs taken by club members past and present. I’ve tried to keep then in more or less chronological order. Some of the dates have been estimated. If anyone can identify the year, and add any relevant comments/stories/anecdotes, then feel free to email them to me and I’ll add them in!

1980s and early 1990s

Hartwoodmyres, Sep 2006

The equipment was set up on the hill at Hartwoodmyres near Selkirk. Dave (GM0KCN) set up his HF dipole (coming down from a long pole, raised by pulley system) and operated his Yaesu 757GX set powered by 12v car battery (still attached to the car)! A vertical fishing pole antenna was also set up.

Colin (MM1APS) arrived and set up his vertical “screwdriver” HF antenna and Kenwood TS50 powered by the biggest sealed-lead-acid “Gell-cell” battery you’ve ever seen!

Jim (GM7LUN), George (GM1OPO) and Mike (MM3NTX) came along and helped out.

Several contacts were made by both Dave and Colin, and a good day was had by all. NB No frogs were harmed during the making of this website…
