70 MHz Net on the Isle of Man

4mt network
At 13:00Hrs on Sunday 30th May there will be a 4mt net around the Island.
This is to test all the refurbished PMR radio’s which have recently been circulated.
The FM1000 radio’s will default to channel 10 (70.3625 MHz) and that will be used as the contact frequency (FM).
Please give a call so that we can test the band for its propagation around the Island.

Tuesday 11 May IOMARS Meeting

The next club meeting at Tromode will be a presentation by Simon Brown GD4ELI on the latest version of SDR and HRD that he is developing - and a sneak preview of what is to come.

Feel free to bring a friend and ask/tell other non club members to come along should they be interested.

We are hoping to record Simon's presentation and stream coverage (thanks to Matty MD0MAN and WiManx) and at some point we will hopefully upload the recording to You Tube, and maybe the Blog and Facebook.
