144MHz LOW POWER Contest
Low Power (25W) SSB Contest on 2m (Saturday) 1400-2000 UTC
Members have proposed a camp at BHRS and an entry in the Low Power contest events. This will have to be on a single operator basis due to current restrictions.
For those interested in HF operating we may also field an entry in the European HF contest to run in parallel with the VHF event.
We are planning a BBQ for those involved in the camp and contest. This may be limited to six people.
This event is now almost fully subscribed with room for just one more member!
Barbeque at BHRS from around 1800 for contest participants and invited guests.
European HF Contest
1200-1200 Saturday to Sunday
Another simple contest, report is just Readability/Signal (59) plus the year in which you first received your licence. 5970 in my case. We have the IC-7300 and can run full legal power with the Henry Linear.
We can run this in parallel to the Low Power contest if there are members interested.
NHS Spitfire Flypast
As part of the NHS Spitfire Flypast a Spitfire will be flying over Hospitals in the South East.
It is timed to arrive over EA DGH at 1205 local time.
Members at BHRS should have a good view as it continues it journey to Brighton DGH
