==Special Event Station==

If you are looking for information on the camp badge radio: [[TiLDA MKe]]
We could apply for an NOV for a special call sign for a special event station, for example GB2EMF.  The question is whether enough people want to operate to keep the station going for the bulk of the weekend.  It's unlikely that anybody wants to spend a significant proportion of their weekend running the special event station.
 
  
==Talk In==

It's also worth noting that some key volunteers and first aiders will have PMR style radios for organisation and operations. If you have any questions about those, ask the info or HQ tent.  
Talk in has been suggested on 2/70 on Friday.  Operator(s) required.  Assuming 145.550 MHz.

==Repeaters==
 
It would be very cool to have a dedicated on-site repeater just for EMF.  The practicality wouldn't be too difficult -- M0RND can provide a 2m/70cm colinear (which might be able to be hosted on the main EMF mast), and there's no shortage of radios which can do cross-band repeat, or something could be lashed up with two Baofeng UV-B5 radios and a diplexer.
 
 
 
The awkward part would be getting an NOV for the repeater, and getting it in time for EMF.

Milton Keynes has its own repeaters, too.  Coverage to be confirmed, but GB7BP looks promising, but is DIGITAL.  So is probably not much use for us.
