A SOTA stand will be exhibited at the “Radioactive Show”, the MIDCARS Rally at Nantwich, on Sunday 21st February 2010. Jimmy M3EYP and I will be running the stand, but if any other SOTA participants are attending the rally in their SOTA T-shirt/sweatshirt, then I would welcome the chance to have a look around myself while someone else looks after the stand for a while.
The traditional annual SOTA meet will be at the Norbreck rally on Sunday 11th April 2010. A SOTA stand and display will be run by myself, Jimmy M3EYP, and hopefully Rob G4RQJ and Audrey. Brian M0OYG has already offered to do a stint as well - thanks Brian. We look forward to meeting many SOTA friends old and new again on the day, and hopefully maintain/raise the profile of SOTA here in its ‘heartland’ of North West England. And maybe further afield too, as parties from GM, GI and EI usually attend this rally.
On Tuesday 23rd February 2010, I will be delivering a talk and presentation about SOTA at the Wrexham ARS. On Friday 3rd July 2010 I am doing a SOTA-related talk about a couple of radio amateurs walking the Pennine Way (and activating a few summits along the way!) at the Coventry ARS.
Talks are also pencilled in for the Forest of Dean ARS and the South Cheshire ARS, but dates yet to be confirmed.
Club talks available are:
SOTA (the main presentation about Summits on the Air)
SOTA on the Pennine Way
SOTA in Northern Ireland
and also a different talk about Offshore Pirate Radio. Just get in touch if your club would like me to visit and do one of these. All my SOTA talks are co-presented by Jimmy M3EYP - unless he has school in the morning!
