Brian Bouckley sent us this bit of information:
I received my September 2015 QST yesterday and noted an article on the First Annual Field Day in 1933 on page 75.
The “London Amateur Radio Club” is mentioned twice in this article.
For those who would be interested in trying out a flight simulator at Hamilton's Internatinal Airport, please contact Dave Lambert.
Daves asks the question:
Would it make for a trip of 4/5 people interested to go?
It is $150 per hour plus tax but it can be done in half hour segments @ $75.

A few photos, though it does not illustrate the terrible weather we had Photo Link
The 20m PSK31 station before it was blown down. Notice how one side of the tent is blown inward and the other side is bellowing out. Shortly after this picture was taken we had to abandon because of the volume of rain threatened to collapse the tent (After we abandoned, the tent did indeed collapse).
