Everything is ready for Saturday at the Vale of Berkeley Railway for Railways On The Air. At the moment we have only 2 people attending and it would be nice if we could get a couple more even if only for an hour or so.
If you are interested please see Rex or John.
Our callsign will be GB4VBR.
Rex (G4RAE), John (M0HFH) and myself (M6EAT) made an interesting visit to the Vale of Berkeley Railway on Saturday in preparation for ROTA on Saturday 23rd September.
We are undertaking a short visit again this Saturday for some antenna prep and then we will be ready for the day.
We could still do with some more radio operators for the day as I am actually away on holiday. The railway are very interested in this and have given the club the use of the boardroom for the day so everything will be nice and warm and dry.
If anyone can make a few hours then please let one of use know.
As mentioned at the club Wednesday, whilst on holiday last week I visited the Museum of Internal Fire at Tanygroes, Ceredigion. SA43 2JS. www.internalfire.com
As well as lots of engines they have lots of things of interest to the radio amateur including a radio room, radio equipment, testing equipment, telephone equipment, ships radio rooms and a small titanic display where you can also hear the last message sent by the Titanic.
Here are some pictures of the visit taken on my phone.
I have a few more if people are interested.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Just to let you know my callsign is M6EAT 🙂
