The group decided to lug the microwave kit up to the top of the hill – approx 130m ASL, all systems go and waiting for QSOs at this stage!
Left to right: Terry G3VFC, John G4BAO, Rob M0VFC, Steve M1ACB and Dom M0BLF
Gavin Nesbitt MM1BXF (M1BXF while in England) – The group’s primary geek, has almost every conceivable gadget that can be used in Amateur Radio. Known to run 3 QSOs at once on 3 separate bands. Key team member, without whom the group wouldn’t be anywhere near as successful. Setting up contacts on 6m when this picture was taken.
Dominic Smith M0BLF (MM0BLF while in Scotland) – Yet another Red Gate geek, keen CW operator and contester, CUWS member, and also videoing much of the Camb Hams goings-on together with M0VFC for a mini-documentary. Doesn’t normally look this serious! Working F4ARM/QRP on 20m SSB when this picture was taken.
Mark Hickford M0MJH (MM0MJH while in Scotland) – Amateur singer and samba drummer (surdo – whatever that is!?), enjoys Jack Daniels and custard, sometimes simultaneously, pedestrian mobile HF operations (including working VK7s from his backpack) and plays bingo. Working M1JNC on 40m SSB when this picture was taken.
Colin Leonard G4ERO (GM4ERO while in Scotland) – Another highly valued member of the team, Colin built the 4m and 6m beam antennas, as well as the legs for M0LCM’s SCAM mast. Very handy in a workshop, and a skilled operator on voice or CW. Also brought along his Elecraft K3, which he’s using here. Working OM8CM on 17m CW when this picture was taken.
