|EI5DI Paul O'Kane talks about his SD contest logger|
Then on Sunday there was a radio rally followed by the annual general meeting of the IRTS. The rally was well attended in a big venue and everyone seemed happy, including the traders, who flogged some ham kit and made a few bob.
There was a very interesting talk about his contesting software (SD) by Paul O'Kane EI5DI.
At the AGM of IRTS, Seamus McCague EI8BP was elected as new President. I had the pleasure of being presented with a trophy for winning the high power portable section of the IRTS 2 metres counties contest (August 2011, joint winner) and I had the double pleasure of being elected to the new committee of the IRTS for the forthcoming year.
There was a portable radio setup at the venue in Dundalk and for a short time I operated as EI80IRTS, the special callsign to celebrate the 80th anniversary year.

PS: Sorry the blog hasn't been updated too often lately. I am half way through my new book on Newgrange, which is being published in the autumn. This is keeping me very busy, and unfortunately I am doing less radio as a result.
PPS: That hasn't stopped me from working the 9M0L Spratly Islands dxpedition on six band slots!!!
