Thanks again for working us!
To celebrate the Commonwealth Games in the summer of 2014, the Stirling & District Amateur Radio Society (GM6NX) hosted a special event station at their club premises, approximately 25 miles north-east of the city of Glasgow
IOTA: EU-005 (Great Britain)
The Station was run by members of the Stirling & DARS along with the support of other clubs and individuals
Check out our interview on TX Factor
There were 3 HF stations and a 50MHz VHF station in operation
We were active from 1.8MHz to 50MHz; using CW, SSB and Data
For more information about the station, check us out at: www.ga14cg.com
Our log from the operation:
We prefer electronic confirmations, because...
Please do not send us you card, especially if we have a confirmed QSO on LoTW
We are happy to provide electronic confirmations for free. If you feel you must contribute in some way, please feel free to send us a donation via PAYPAL instead of your card
All donations received go directly towards the running costs of the station and the equipment repairs afterwards (we already have some damage). No profit is made
Of course, we fully appreciate some of the radio community still prefer paper confirmations but again PLEASE DO NOT SEND US YOUR CARD!
Our QSO Policy for either bureau or direct is that we will support requests ONLY VIA CLUBLOG!
If you want a paper card, please request a card direct or via the bureau using Clublog OQRS. When using OQRS, you DO NOT send your card to us, which is unnecessary and slows down the QSL process
Why do we only use ClubLog Online QRS?...
The whole QSL process is very costly and with a QSO count of over 21,000 contacts the cost is substantial. If you have requested a bureau card (which we will supply for free) and feel you would like to make a contribution to our running costs, please use the donate button below:
Thank you for your understanding!
Any issues, please e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org
