2m Counties Contest

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.

I can’t find it, lads, Lads?

April Meeting

As the club had a meeting last week, and quite a few were present at the Galtee Walking Festival, the Committee has decided to postpone the April meeting until later in the month.
The club has been asked if we could provide voice communications for the Ballyhoura Walking Festival. We will most likely have a meeting closer to the date (last weekend in April) to organise ourselves for this event.

Walking Festival

The committee of Tipperary Amateur Radio Group would like to thank everyone who helped out over the weekend of the Galtee Walking Festival on the 1st/2nd of April.

  • Conor O’Neill, EI4JN
  • Tommy Hallinan – EI2IT
  • John Burke – EI2JB
  • Luke Burke – SWL
  • Stephen O’Leary – SWL
  • Eamon Kavanagh – EI3FFB
  • Paul Norris – EI3ENB
  • John Ronan – EI7IG

We plan to have a more detailed report (and pictures) at some stage in the future.

The monthly meeting of Tipperary Amateur Radio Group will be held next Thursday night, the second of March at 20:00 in Raheen house, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. All are welcome.

Galtee Walking Festival

Tipperary Amateur Radio Group will be participating in the Glen of Aherlow Walking festival on Saturday and Sunday the first and second of April 2006.
