Happy Birthday to Tango Mike!

Post by MrWeetabix » 27 Apr 2016, 09:55

Hello everyone,

So I've been doing some work on getting a TM1 presence on Facebook, if for no other reason than to direct some of the traffic that might come via social media back onto this forum. During this work, I realised that this year is the 10th anniversary of the Tango Mike DX group!

To be exact, it will be ten years in November since TM was born, a spin-off from the Transmission1 forum and now one of the most-active DX groups in the UK.

I would welcome suggestions on how to celebrate this on-the-air. I'll organise a date/s to have specific activities run, but if anyone else has any suggestions, then please let me know.

I may also get a limited edition run of QSL cards made, available to members for their collections or for their own use, it will depend on demand and when I get time to design some.

Anyway, Happy 10th Birthday to Tango Mike, before we know it, it'll be a surly teenager, with its pants hanging round it's arse and its face glued to its iPhone all day! haha

Best 73 to everyone and thanks for making TM1 and Tango Mike what they are today!

I would be up for three different mode-events. Could be kinda cool.

We have three Bank Holiday Weekends to go this year too, so Maybe I can get something moving along those lines?

Perhaps users could suffix their TM calls with /TEN for the duration of the Event

I was thinking of the Weekend of 12/13th November to have a DX event around the Birthday celebrations. Anyone in for that? :-)
