December 2021

Dear Members,

Welcome to the December update for members of the Lomond Radio Club.


On the 25th November the club held its AGM which was attended by 11 members. A new committee was elected as follows:

Chairman – Gordon 2M0PIJ
Secretary – Simon MM0XME
Treasurer – Stephen MM7KEL
Station Manager – Dave GM0RTY
Ordinary Member – Craig 2M0JUM
Website – Stephen MM7KEL

The new committee would like to thank the previous committee for their hard work and look forward to serving you the members in continuing to make this a great club.

Membership Subscriptions. Annual subscriptions will be collected in the New Year and it is hoped to enable these to be paid via BACS transfer. The subscription costs will remain at £25. All new and existing members will be asked to complete a membership form to ensure we have your up-to-date details. More info will be sent out soon.

Radio Shack

Following some damp issues the radio shack has been cleared of equipment and is now under renovation. If you can offer some spare time to assist with decoration and repair please contact Gordon, any help will be much appreciated.

We hope to have the shack as a nice place to operate and learn. Once completed it is intended that the shack will be open for weekend operating, contests and more.

Plans for 2022.

A good discussion was has at the AGM on ideas and plans for 2022. The club hopes to do more next year with COVID restrictions now eased (for now at least). Plans include a number of field days at special locations, a rally, contesting and build nights. If there is something that you feel we should be doing then please speak to the committee. 

Loch Lomond Sunday Night Net.

The net run by Paul MM3DDQ is back after its summer hiatus running every Sunday at 8pm. The net is open to all radio amateurs, not just members, and can be accessed via the new link frequency of 145.3375 MHz FM (CTCSS 103.5) in the Vale of Leven and Clyde area.

Or via Echolink node MB7IBH-L and is also available via the Scotland AllStar Network. For more information please see the Facebook Group.
