G4WSM Field Day

Browsing the website of the Weston super Mare club (G4WSM), I found the video below. ¬†As its rather fun, I’m posting it here too ūüôā ¬†Whilst we’ve just had our field weekend wouldn’t it have been good to make a video like this? ¬†Unfortunately, the sound is a bit corrupted with funny ‘dit and dah’ noises. ¬†Only kidding ūüėČ


RSGB national SSB field day

The RSGB SSB field-day takes place over the weekend of 5 & 6th of September.  I agreed earlier in the year to organise something but now realise I am not available that weekend so organising a field event is difficult.

Would someone else like to organise this event?

To take part in the contest our station would need to comply with these RSGB guidelines.
