Also in GB2RS this week…

| March 6, 2015

Starting Sunday, 8 March, the GB2RS transmission at 1000 on 40m from Germany will move to a new frequency of 7.127MHz. This change is being made to accommodate contest activity that competes for spectrum on the band. Our thanks go to G3SIB/DJ0OK and M0DXM/DJ2XB for their continued support of the GB2RS news service. The 1030 reading of the news from Stornaway by GM3JIJ will continue on 7.150MHz as normal.

The Chiltern DX Club holds its annual dinner on 21 March at the Calcot Hotel, Reading, Berkshire. The event starts at 2pm with a session on remote operation. This will include talks and demonstrations on the reasons for setting up a remote station or operating your home station remotely. There is no charge for the afternoon event but numbers are limited so booking is essential. A three course dinner follows at 7:30pm with the after dinner talk being Nick, G3RWF with Tales of an Amateur Amateur. Again, booking is essential. All of the details are on the CDXC website.

URE club stations in the mainland will share, not simultaneously, the call EG90IARU. URE club stations outside the mainland—6, 8 and 9 call areas—will share, not simultaneously, the call EH90IARU.
