[[|]] | Current Outing:



Outing (to be) held from 11:00-18:00 on 2019/05/04 in/on Southampton Common



We have had to cancel this particular outing, because there are not enough people available to ensure we can operate everything and still have a fun time. We will try to arrange another outing reasonably soon with the same goals.

Original plan

It's time for a long-overdue all-day Saturday outing to the Common! We shall meet in the Zepler Foyer around 11:00 to fetch things from the cupboard and possibly cage if we have the man and motor power. Exact plan to be decided at the meeting on Thursday the 2nd of May, but there will definitely be some HF and VHF operation.

Things we will need

To be filled in with a rough plan of who's bringing what so that we can make sure we have the right bits and the correct quantity of food. Will discuss in detail on Thursday the 2nd of May.

    • IC-7000
