The annual Lothians Summer Barbecue was held on Wednesday 6th July at the QTH of Pete GM4BYF and Kay GM6KAY who put on a magnificent spread for the many members and guests who attended. Especially welcome were a number of visitors from the Museum of Communication in Burntisland, with which the Lothians Radio Society has a close relationship. Unfortunately the weather prevented the barbecue from being held outside; instead we enjoyed being in the spacious sun-room of Pete and Kay's house at Fairmilehead.
