Late August update

Another good day up on the hill, with plenty on interesting contacts on 2m, all modes.

Our day started off with a breakfast down at the Continental Cafe in Seaside and then up on the hill at the Beachy shack.

We set up the beam and wound up our more than a tenner mask, then worked a number of stations from Wales down to Cornwall and finally a station down in Worthing.

All the operators were up for a chin wag, so it was lengthy conversations, all the way through the afternoon.

The weather was mixed and boiling the kettle and closing one of the doors, made the shack toasty warm and still OK for sitting there in T Shirts.

The Hellingly festival of transport is over the Bank holiday weekend and Tony G3ZQB will be there displaying an old diesel engine, Barry G8DXU is exhibiting his Military Land Rover full of radio equipment. So do pop over and say hi to them. Link with details below….
