Persuaded the XYL and her sister to go walking yesterday, and took the opportunity to excercise the Conterra-inc Radio Harness. We walked up to the top of Suí Finn (Seefin) in the Monavullagh mountains.
I managed to raise EI2IT, EI5JF and M3MEL (Cornwall) on simplex from the cairn on the top, and EI1CN on the SEARG repeater system.
Many thanks to all who turned up last night, a most informative and enjoyable meeting was had by all I think. Keep August 27th in your diaries as we’re planning an assault on Slievenamban for the 2m Counties Contest.
TARG will be having a meeting Thursday night, the 3rd of August (20:00) in Raheen House, Clonmel. All are welcome.
All is quiet on Helvick Head!
Hope to see you all Thursday evening, 20:00, Raheen House Clonmel. We will be discussing plans for the upcoming VHF/UHF field day, all are welcome.
Many thanks to those that turned up for the meeting last night. A wide and varied discussion was enjoyed, covering such diverse topics as Solar Power (PV and Water Heating), 2.4 & 5.8Ghz WiFi networking and Contest logging computer interfaces. See you all again next month.
Follow Tom, WA5KUB live as he drives to the Dayton Hamvention. I wonder what goodies the big manufacturers will release this year? Keep an eye on findu for their position.
We will be having a general meeting on wednesday the third of May at 20:00 at Raheen House Hotel, Raheen, Clonmel. All are welcome. Call on S18 for directions.
Most of the Committee were present at the IRTS AGM this year. Paul, EI3ENB ventured down to Cork Saturday evening, EI7IG, EI2IT and EI3FFB departed their various homes to arrive in time for ‘kick-off’. EI2HI arrived afterwards, just in time to collect the Sliabh na mBan (Slievenmon) Shield, again!. EI7IG collected the Shandon Trophy on behalf of TARG, for the Clubs efforts in the VHF/UHF Field day last July, and (a surprised) EI7IG also collected the Shiela Piper Cup. A most enjoyable day was had by all.

We hope everyone had as much fun as TARG members had today in participating in the contest, many thanks to EI2IT, EI3ENB and EI7IG for operating in quite cool conditions at the top of Slievenamban. Good luck to all that participated and Happy Easter!
After several years absence, TARG returned to the top of Slievenamban for the counties contest. Though cold, it was good fun, and to paraphrase the immortal words of Arnie, “We’ll be back”. Many thanks to Jim Ronan for working on getting the Argo 8×8 mountain-worthy.
Hmmm, will this hold?
I can’t find it, lads, Lads?
