Club Meeting 05-05-2016 – Cuba on CW

With nothing special planned the members met for a “noggin and natter night”, but this time we decided to open up the shack.

Tuning around 17m, chairman Ian, G7DWY found CO8LY on C.W. Eduardo in Santiago de Cuba. The only problem was no key!

We have two keys, but no-one got around to putting a plug on the keyer, and the Junkers straight key had the wrong plug. Plug found the Junkers was rewired and much to the amusement of all Ian called….

On the Third call, a QRZ. Repeat the call a couple of times and hey presto, CO8LY in the log (followed by a round of applause from the members!!!)

Come and see us one week – we are usually friendly….
