Wight Away (fri)

Friday while on the Isle of Wight I had a long lie in and was not up until nearly midday. When I did get up I found my dad clearing the hotels swimming pool of leaves, etc.

We then had some lunch and watched some TV for a few hours. At 5:30 we ordered our tea from Mr T’s Pizza Shed. My dad had a large doner kebab and I had the bellybuster (12oz (339g) ribeye steak chargrilled and served in a pitta bread with salad and chips) although with no salad but with garlic mayo. Yum!.

In the evening we headed over to Bembridge where the Isle of Wight Radio Society (IWRS) meet. We spent a few hours there chatting to everyone. My dad even knew some of the members and is thinking of joining and trying to get his Amateur Licence. We was shown the rooms and one had the transmitting stuff in and soon they were getting contacts from as far away as Japan. I was given a go using the club call (G3SKY) and made 3 contacts although I can only remember one that was in Germany.

I would like to say thank you to everyone at the club for making me feel very welcome and I am sure I will be along to the club again when on the Isle of Wight.
