Museum of Flight GB2MOF – Fri15th to Sun 17th June

GB2MOF will be operational from the Museum of Flight this weekend as part of the “International Museums on the Air” event, an event we have been involved in since 2001.

 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.

Saturday we hope to be on the air from 08:00 through to 17:00 and 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 the hopeful pile-ups.
