LIGHTHOUSE WEEKEND 16th to 18th AUGUST

Event at Barns Ness Lighthouse, Dunbar

Come and take part in this event. The team will arrive mid morning on Friday 16th to build the station.

As usual, we will have a Cushcraft A3S at about 70 feet for 10, 15 and 20m and a dipole sloping from 60 to 20feet for 40m. As a wee change, we plan to build a 3 ele monoband yagi for 17m and have it at about 40 feet just for a bit of fun.

This is not a contest, it is a social even with as much radio thrown in as you want until 3pm on Sunday 18th where we will dismantle the station.

If you can’t come and operate, please work us, we’d love that.

There is ample room to pitch a tent and loads of room inside the buildings for social activities.

We always enjoy lots of food and beer as well as playing radio.

All welcome.
