Exercise Blue Ham 20-1
First in this years series of Blue Ham events where amateurs with a FULL licence exchange details with Air and perhaps military Cadet stations all over the UK.
Operations are on the 60m (5MHz( Band Phone in using USB or data.
We can operate on this band whilst taking part in the 144MHz event. Members without a full licence can also participate from BHRS under supervision. This is normally a very enjoyable event and we only need 10 different contacts to gain a certificate.
