Museum of Flight – VULCAN EVENT GB2VEF – Fri 19th to Sun 21st April

Vulcan landing at East Fortune in 1984

GB2VEF will be operational from the Museum of Flight this weekend on behalf of the Vulcan to the Sky Club and Trust

This special event is part of the 2013 celebrations that are being run to promote the last flying Vulcan Bomber XH558 in her 2013 flying season.

We will be setting up on Friday afternoon in Hanger 1 at the museum from about 13:00 onwards and if you are free and wish to help you will be more than welcome. The aim is to get at least 2 hours operating after the build before the 17:00 Museum closure.

We hope to be on the air on Saturday from 08:00 through to 17:00 and on Sunday from 08:00 through to 15:30.

The station will consist of 2 x HF stations – one dedicated to 40m and the other 20/15/10m depending on band conditions.

Come along and take part and have some fun working a large station and, hopefully, the pile-ups.
