The role of the Membership Outings Co-ordinator is as follows:
Kieron Murphy M5KJM
My role on the Committee is the outings co-ordinator. I organise the SRS outings to places like Bletchley Park, Jodrell Bank etc.
If anyone has suggestions for outings, please contact me. We require somewhere suitable for 25 to 30 members minimum to keeps the travel costs affordable, and these outings do not have to be radio related.
My main interest is HF, chasing DX and contesting plus the IOTA program.
I’m an active member of SRS Contest Group. I organise travel arrangements to and from the different venues where we operate from. This is not only organising the ferries, tickets etc, but also find accommodation, places to eat, and not forgetting suitable drinking establishments. Once the contests have taken place, I submit the logs and QSL for our Arranmore expeditions, and also all the other contests that we are involved in CQWW, CQ WPX, RSGB National Field day and IOTA.
I also have done several mini dxpeditions with Pete M1PTR and Tom M0DCG, and write articles following these dxpeditions for QUA.
I am also part of the team that arranges the IOTA talk night which is normally later in the year, so that members can see what is involved.
I am also a member of the Harry Arnfield Trustees Fund, attending all meetings and being part of the decision making team.
Over the last 12 months, I have assisted at the presentation evenings organising the drinks and playing ‘Barman’.
