In prep.

The Heriot-Watt University Amateur Radio Society GM3WEE was founded in the late-1960s while your scribe was a student there and became its first secretary. 

The club was greatly supported by Prof. Arthur Bolton GM3BMI (at left in photo below) who provided a complete SSB station - Sommerkamp FR110B / FL200B for the club station on the top floor of the Mountbatten building in the Grassmarket. Also by Prof. Colin W Davidson GM3LAV (SK-2020) of Electrical Engineering.

The Lothians Radio Society ran  a special event station GB3EIF from the GM3WEE shack in the late-1960s.
