This was organized by Andy G7LRR and Mr Jason M0MGF thanks to Jason for the new log system
(Of which i still need more practice) but have been installed on the system at the shack.
Also thanks to Mr Andy for the work carried out on the antenna system which enabled us to
Transmit on the night.
The contest started at 20.00hrs local time Andy started with a good influx of calls at this time we
Were still having slight problems with the antennas.
M0RWL took over with M0VEY as the logger it take a while to get into this sort of thing me been a
Newby and all but we gave our best, M0VEY then took over and tried his hand at contest work
Still with the antenna playing up(and Andy in the background trying very hard to bring the offending item to task).
Many thanks to Mr Simon 2E0GMW and Mr Jason (GB2RN) for calling in .
Must admit nice to talk to Jason from down south.
Would be nice if we could encourage people with CW or data/psk to take part this would
Up our club points if interested please get in touch.
Most of the contests named above can be carried out at home with the points been awarded
To the club.
Our rating would then be much higher also get the club noticed.
Besides you never know you you may enjoy it please make a bit of an effort.
Many thanks

Humber 2010 Finale Luncheon


200 Year of Lifeboats at Spurn Point, Humber 2010 Finale Luncheon
Well as you may well know some of our member’s got tickets for the Luncheon, and to show our support and thanks to the crew.


 Thanks to Humber lifeboat crew, the Luncheon went very well indeed,

we were made to feel welcome once again by the crew whom spoke with us all one by one about the weekend and how we did and if we enjoyed it, they enjoyed having us there.
One of the Crew has invited us to all go up in the summer for barbecue, we will try and make this an event I am sure.

We made a donation from the club and bought a year of history thanks to all member that dipped in we raised 80 pounds.

I know also other members have bought years also making our total for the station 155.00 pounds not bad for a small club well done guys.

 As you will see by the photos the Luncheon was packed out, Andy G7LRR, Bob  M0RWL and John G6LNV,

 presented Superintendent coxswain Dave Steenvoorden and the crew,

 with a thank you letter and a framed photo with a little write-up on it as you can read.

This was put on display for all to see
Great day out maybe next time more will come to such events, by the way Dave Steenvoorden and crew for the 200 year anniversary
along with their supporters raised over £65,000 for the station in the 200th anniversary.
