Car Boot HF Operations – Tues 23 July 24

Robert M0UET took the opportunity to do some 20m CW ops from the boot of the car at the final meeting before our Rally on Sunday. Using a 2E0ERO Mag Loop and an Xiegu X6100 many stations were heard.

See you Sunday at the Rally. 73 from the Website Team.


Neston Fete 2024

The Club was out and about on Saturday 13th July at Neston Fete near Corsham.  We set up an FT8/FT4 station using an Icom IC-705 and a Chameleon F-Loop 2.0.  Our SSB operations were made using a Xiegu X6100 and a Bantenna vertical.  Many visitors came to our stall and of particular interest was our broadcast of NA1SS the International Space Station.
