In reply to G4RQJ:
Hi Rob, that's fantastic and it is exactly what I intended the Fun nights to be, to encourage newcomers to sota and raise sota awareness in general.
Most important is to activate for the first half hour on 2-fm then the second half hour on 2-ssb, just so that we all know where and when to look for each other and also the chasers can find us, after that anything goes.
A good tip is to make a print-out of the alerts page just before you leave home, this is a good guide of who is where.
Fingers crossed for good wx, I'll be in my office, as usual and will be looking for "your crowd", Good luck and most importantly, stay safe. Tell your gang to download one of Richard G3CWI's route cards from the Sotabeams website, http://www.sotabeams.co.uk/cards.htm a good habit to get new ops into.
Catch you on the 6th May.
