Delta Alfa Larne LOTA Tour - SOON!


COMING SOON!!!!

"Standby DX Hunters!
At the end of this month, renowned DA-RC DXpedition team, the ‘Globetrotters’, have on their DX radar the majestic seascapes of Northern Ireland’s Antrim County.
Here the duo (aka 104DA102 Syl and 104DA101 Roy) have singled out a number of lighthouses positioned around Larne Seaport for some momentous 11m dx action.
From lighthouse grounds and/or within visual sight the activities will take place with a compact portable station planned for each DX mission"

More SSB weekly net action here in the UK.....


NEW Yaesu FT-DX101D HF/50MHz 100W SDR Transceiver



A new radio is on the way from Yaesu, this time they're going down the SDR route which is something that they have resisted for the past couple of years. Yaesu had said that they were not convinced that the SDR technology was good enough to replace traditional radios. So I assume that they've improved on the technology enough now to produce this new radio.
