Martin Atherton G3ZAY (GM3ZAY while in Scotland) – Our best CW operator, seasoned DXPeditioner, global traveller and linguist (counts Gaelic as one of the languages he knows), brings along a lot of decent equipment on these trips, from radio equipment to camping gear. President of the Cambridge University Wireless Society. Doing CW on 30m when this picture was taken.
Geoff Wilkin G0DDX (GM0DDX while in Scotland) – Bit of a petrolhead, into his kit cars, and has been known to show us how to rebuild brake lines in 20 minutes. Always has tools with him to fix anything vehicle related – definitely a valued team member! Tea or coffee as long as it’s milky. Doing CW on 40m when this picture was taken.
Peter Goodhall 2E0SQL (2M0SQL while in Scotland) – another SQL geek (callsign gives that one away), web developer, keen contester and another great team member. Doesn’t do coffee, prefers tea. Developing cloud-based logging tools in his spare time. Prefers WordPress over Joomla. Operating on 80m when this picture was taken
Robert Chipperfield M0VFC (MM0VFC while in Scotland) – resident logging software programmer, SQL geek, photographer, videographer and all round great team member. Can’t start the day without coffee. Getting better at CW. Still finding bugs and improving the logging software, while we use it! Operating on 40m in this picture.
I write this as we travel up the A82, wonderful scenery and great company – definitely a good start to the week!
The day dawned bright and sunny – blue skies with scattered cloud, and a brisk 7 degrees celsius as we travel along the shores of Loch Lomond on the way to the ferry port at Oban.
We’ll be doing a last shopping trip in Oban for perishables and then catching the ferry across to Mull.
As we are a larger group this year some of us decided to stay at a Travel Lodge and about half the group stayed at Gavin M1BXF’s parents last night – thanks again to their wonderful hospitality!
We are on our way from Cambridge to Dumbarton!
