Thanks go to Keith M0KAN, Ian G4EVK and Chris 2E0BMA for putting the 23cm antenna on the tower last Saturday; the coax, swr etc still need checking but this will be done this week. However all was not lost, after struggling with noise issues and power supply problems for the last 3 days, Bob G7AVU worked hard and finally, at 8.45 on Tuesday night, managed to get on the air on 23cm and worked 16 stations including IO74 square in Scotland and IO91 in London the points going to LSWC; well done and thank you Bob. LSWC is now listed on 3 bands this month. In October the shack will be open on Tuesday 6th for the 144mhz and on the 20th for the 23cm UKAC contests.
There is a 70cm and 23cm 24 hour contest on 3rd/4th October and if there is enough interest then the club will take part in it. If you are interested in taking part in this contest please let Keith M0KAN or Steve G1PPA know.
