Between 23rd & 31st January I took part in the SOS Radio Week 2010, organised by Derek & David Hughes, G7LFC & M3LFC.
Full details of this are on the Lifeboat Amateur Radio Society website, details / link below, with various fundraising events being held by amateur radio enthusiasts before & after the RNLI SOS fundraising day on 29th January.
In total I made over 120 contacts working locally on 2 metres & worldwide on echolink & CQ100. Most of my activity was over the weekend of 30th / 31st January.
Sponsorship & donations pledged amounted to £70, & I was able to forward a cheque for this amount to the SOS Radio Week organisation. To date, in 2012, 'LARS' have raised over £10,000 for the RNLI.

Thank you to all who sponsored me & to all who made contact during this enjoyable special event.
