Sorry there has been very little activity from me during the last few months, family stuff has taken up a lot of my spare time recently, and radio has been well off the menu. However I will try and get back into the Blog as our Summer comes to an end.
I was recently contacted by one of the Telford Hamfest organisers asking me to give a talk:
We would like to invite you to give a "talk" at our "Telford Hamfest" QRP,
orientated, would be great. The date for our Hamfest is Sunday September 2nd
2018. We expect to put on three "Talks". The "Talks" would last about 40(ish),
minutes, with a Q&A after each, with a gap until the next talk. The timings
are 11.30,12.30 and 13.30. I hope you are able to take us up on our offer
The Telford Hamfest is a Radio rally which has been held around the Telford area for many years at various venues. But for a number of years has stabilised at being held at Coalbrookdale, Shropshire, and also now incorporates the G-QRP Convention as an added bonus.
Well Stephen had already decided he wasn't going to the Hamfest this year, so it all arrived too late! But it is with interesting thought what I would of talked about, and who actually put me up for this, I could name a few?
The last lecture I gave is when I ran a Packet radio BBS and node (GB7RUG) some 20 years ago. Talks don't just come together overnight, sorry I had no real time to prepare anyway. So Telford Radio club and G-QRP thanks for asking, I might do it next year if you give me enough time to think about it?
Actually by now I have mulled it over I have even thought in my dreams what I would of chatted about Hmmm! Humm!
See you all next year :-)
