News Letter 00111
 

 We all know what it is like to wear a hat and depending on

your age also depends on the style used, so with this in mind Mr Phil (M0VEY) was thrown a challenge .

This was given by Andy G7LRR Chairman of the Humber Fortress DX Amateur Radio Club.

The challenge was for M0VEY to wear a different type of hat,cap headgear each week to the clubhouse located at fort Paull ,well with this sort of challenge thrown what would any decent law abiding go up north once a month person do but accepted and he did.

The very first picture was take in the club prior to the start of the first RSGB short contest 80m ssb on Wednesday night the 4th January.

So there you are folks a good start to the new year 2011.

Phils hats so far

 

I intend in the future to do a
small feature on members of the
club, nothing personal just a
few words, facts and figures on
how they entered the hobby.
I will always show a draft copy
to them beforehand, in case they
would like it removed.
So please, if there is anyone in
the club that dosn’t wish to take
part, please let me know.
Many thanks
Bob Lane MORWL
