The GM3HAM Contest Group of the Lothians Radio Society operated in RSGB VHF NFD on 7th-8th July 2012 from our excellent site in the hills above Gatehouse of Fleet, looking out over the Solway Firth towards the Isle of Man. Unlike most of the rest of the country we had excellent weather apart from rain during Friday night and a brief shower while packing up on Sunday afternoon. Operation was on 6m, 4m, 2m and 70cm with very long yagi antennas.  We were joined by guest operator Terry GM3WUX from Glasgow, who operated on 6m and 4m, mostly CW. Full report with many photos.
