Modes: SSB / CW/ Data

Open to anyone who wishes to take part

 The aim of the event is to get on the air and work as many stations that you can in the allotted time period plus at the same time have some fun. We are Radio Amateurs after all and we are supposed to get on the air and make contacts so come on then let me see you doing it.
 After the event can you send me a copy of your log, I know they are not mandatory but it will enable me to write up some report on what you all managed to achieve plus why not update the club tables and show everyone else what you achieved.


Closing Date for the Logs is Friday, 6th July 2012

 Look forward to a massive turnout for the event…


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.
