GMDX Convention 2017 - Scotland, 1 Απρ 2017

 
Do you stay in Europe? Never visited Scotland before? Want to meet like-minded DXers or simply ragchew over a DX Dinner? Then why not visit one of northern Europe’s premier DX conventions on April 1st, 2017. It’s now easier than ever to visit Scotland with regular daily flights from all over Europe arriving to Edinburgh or Glasgow; both cities just a short drive from the GMDX convention venue. Make a long weekend out of your visit by taking in the convention and doing some sightseeing. Scotland really is a breathtakingly beautiful country!

Όλοι οι επαναλήπτες VHF της Ε.Ε.Ρ. είναι με διαμόρφωση narrow. Φροντίστε να χρησιμοποιείτε το ίδιο εύρος διαμόρφωσης, διαφορετικά να μιλάτε χαμηλότερα στο μικρόφωνο για να σας "περνάει" ο επαναλήπτης. Η διαυλοποίηση στα 2 μέτρα είναι υποχρεωτικά 12.5 KHz και όχι 25 KHz.
