The plan

Dominic (M0DLX) is planning to enter in the 6 Hours Other/Open section, where we can commit for up to six hours in one or more blocks, and work with multiple operators from a fixed or portable site. The plan is to walk up to the Eastnor Obelisk area on the hillside and run a portable station from a battery.


  • Icom IC-706mkIIg transceiver
  • 2m yagi/beam + pole
  • battery

Need to confirm which callsign to use on the day.

Join in

If you'd like to come along, please do. Licensed amateurs can operate under the same callsign as it's multi-operator, non-amateurs are welcome to watch and listen. A second person can be useful for logging (do bring headphones if you can)!
