It is with great trepidation Workington & District Amateur Radio Club move into YouTube videos. There are some tasters from DXpeditions put up on our channel which is available here.
These video’s were meant a reminders of DXpeditions and feature club members and their youthful features. Please feel free to browse and more will be uploaded in due course
Early indications are that the club managed a creditable 3rd in section for the National Field Day Contest
1st in Section for 70Mhz
2nd in Section for 50Mhz
2nd in Section for 144Mhz
A full report will be drawn up and any learning put forward for next year
A few weeks ago the club website was hacked and redirected. This means that we’ve not had a presence for some time whilst things were updated and shifted about. repotted and put out in the spring air. Now, fingers crossed we’re back up to speed and the security beefed up. But as always these things are never without risk and so the site may be up and down like the proverbial whilst every last piece of hackers code is removed.
Thanks for your patience and I hope this doesn’t last too long

Found this post lurking in the drafts folder so edited a little and published for information, appols for the delay Keith.
Further modified by myself following discussion at the last meeting. Seems like a slightly later start would benefit a few folks. So come on, get involved or at least listen in.
The Sands Contest Group – MX0SCG – is celebrating five years of operation this weekend so listen out for them on the air. I took advantage of the lovely weather today to take a drive down to Ian and Linda’s place to say hello and scrounge a bacon sarnie and lashings of tea. It was great to say hello to the group members and to generally have a good crack.
Best wishes and kind regards to all, and Ian, you may have raised my interest in Mac’s!

Hello and thanks for visiting our blog. As you can see from the lack of posts this is a new venture for our club and is in the process of being established. The intention is to allow club members access to the blog so that information can be shared more readily than with a web site.
We also intend to use the blog to document progress of our DXpeditions by sharing pictures, on-line logs that are updated daily and written updates for each day’s activity. We have methods of updating the blog remotely via packet radio even when we are unable to have an internet connection of any kind. This approach will be tested later this year when we visit the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides off the Scottish coast.
Hope you enjoy our blog and come back soon.
