Lighthouse Weekend – Barns Ness Lighthouse, Dunbar (17/18th August)

Saturday 17th of August, the club will be taking part in this event and using the special call sign GB2LBN. We use this weekend as a general chill out weekend with BBQ and a few beers etc. A few members will be arriving on the Friday evening to start building the station and maybe get on the air. The station will be QRV till approximately 15:30 local time on Sunday 18th.
This is always a very popular event and we usually have a pile up on whatever band we are active on. The main bands will be 20m and 40m. 10, 15 & 20m will be at 60 feet with a Cushcraft A3S and I intend to install the 40m dipole from 120 feet sloping to the south east off the lighthouse.
Please try and attend either for the overnighter (BBQ, Beer) (bring a tent etc) or just to visit and operate or have a cuppa. It is a chance to see two of our contest stations at β€œfull tilt” albeit with reduced antennae.
Look forward to seeing you all there
