Yaesu Heritage Year 2010

    Yaesu Heritage Year 2010 – using their club callsign GS2MP (North of Scotland Contest Group GM7V), Chris GM3WOJ / ZL1CT and Jim GM0NAI will be operating their vintage Yaesu transmitters/receivers and transceivers during 2010. Each calendar month they will use a different Yaesu radio and amateurs worldwide are invited to work GS2MP and earn points towards the Yaesu Heritage Year Award.

    Operation will mostly be on 40m and 20m SSB and CW, using classic radios like the FT-dx-100 (original), FT-200, FT-dx-401, etc. Yaesu (UK) Ltd are kindly sponsoring the event by supplying special QSL cards, small trophies and a special prize to the overall ‘winner’ of this year-long fun event.

    More details to follow soon – please visit www.gm7v.com/yaesu2010.htm for some photos of the vintage radios.
