A few quick snaps taken of our members Michael M0MPM, Harry G3NGX and Jim G0LHZ enjoying a play with some man-portable vintage ex-military gear. With one of the radios dating back to WWII, and with the split frequency operating figured out, at least one legitimate QSO was had, with good reports both ways. With the solar cycle in full swing a new DX record was set, with a mighty 0.2km achieved across the front of the rugby club.
With thanks to our members for supplying the pictures.
Much fun was had with AM QSOs between an ex army Clansman manpack and and WW2 Wireless set 18 man pack on 40 metres. Note the QSL card! Also, work on ATV equipment and 23cm linear by members using club test equipment.
This weekend (15-16 June 2019) it’s time for another “Exercise Blue Ham” event – Exercise Blue Ham 19 on 60 metres. The RAF invites all full licencees to take part and make contact with their special callsigns.
