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.
Note for everyone. This event is not restricted to the “Hard Core”, it is open to everyone. We love people coming to operate the station, just visit, stay over and have a beer with us or just visit and have a cuppa.
Although there is a gate at the public car park, if you are visiting the station, open the gate, come through but please close the gate behind you. If your vehicle is too tall to get through the council barrier, give one of us a call and we’ll come and open it for you or park up, walk down and one of us will come back and open it for you.
The social aspect of this weekend is as important as the radio operation so please come and join us. (or at least work us)
