A Significant Number
Some members of the Kilmarnock and Loudoun Amateur Radio Club worked relentlessly for 24 hours in an international competition with their morse- and voice-transmitters. Between 13.00 on Saturday until 13.00 yesterday they occupied a site on Gigha and managed, from this island, to make contact with 1314 other islands worldwide. The results of the competition will not be known for some time, but all participants from the Ayrshire club were pleased with the tally they achieved on air.
