Grimsby Amateur Radio Society will once again be participating in the 2015 RNLI "SOS" Week from our usual location at the Sunnyside Club, Grant Street, Cleethorpes.
Following a couple of years struggling with excessive noise at the Lifeboat Station QTH, we were offered the facilities at the Sunnyside Club located about half a mile from Lifeboat Station, but overlooking the Cleethorpes Railway Station and the Sea Front.
A good weekend covering Saturday 24th January and Sunday 25th January 2015 was had, and to all stations who called us and helped to make it a a successful weekend, a big thank you from the Grimsby ARS members who participated.
Saturday was trouble free, however, after an excellent start on Sunday, band conditions became very difficult with heavy QSB quickly deteriorating. To the many stations who continued to call us during exceptionally flat conditions, we would like to thank you all for your patience.
We had hoped to continue operating during the coming week, but sadly time is proving to be a restriction. Hopefully we willbe able to continue activity during the week, so do give us a call if you hear us.
There will definitely be activity on Saturday 31st January and Sunday 1st February between 0900 to 1600, mainly SSB on 80m and 40m and other bands that permit; a PSKstation will be active.
We will also be active on 2m and 70cm FM .
In past years we have experienced mixed conditions but have always found the callsign to be in demand and where possible we do like to ensure that all callsigns are given the opportunity to be worked,. Please do give the qrp and weaker stations the chance.
We qsl all stations worked on receipt of all qsl's received, and also reports received from short wave listeners.
During mid December 2012, the crew at Cleethorpes RNLI waved goodbye to their old D Class lifeboat, Blue Peter VI when they breceived a brand new craft donated by Mr.A.Burgess of Malton, North Yorkshire.
The new craft is a "Class D" Lifeboat, named James Burgess II and has a crew of four.
For more information about Cleethorpes RNLI Lifeboat Station see rnli.org/Cleethorpes.
Please remember that not all operators are experienced special event station operators and in the event of any pile-up please do allow them some breathing space and be patient. This allows us all to enjoy our hobby.
If you happen to be in Cleethorpes during the weekend, do call in and introduce yourself, have a chat and sign the visitors book. We are always pleased to welcome visitors to our station.
