Special Event Station at Crich Stand Memorial

Last weekend, we setup a special event station at the Crich stand memorial.

Friday was very windy and the gazebo had to be lashed down with several ropes. Bryan M0OIC was active on HF and worked from his car for the Royal Signals ARS. He arranged his own QSL cards.

Denis M0DEN was our chief operator and made 38 contacts on 2 metres FM.

One visitor from Nunsfield House caught 3 buses from Derby and walked up to the monument just to say hello!
