On Saturday 30th March 2019 our QTH The Post Mill Centre hosted a Viking Fest and the club were asked to operate a station which we were pleased to do. Unfortunately we could not contact the long boats before they set sail but welcomed them on the day. With Svartland Viking Workshops, Viking Combat Viking Falconry, Crown a Viking and a Viking Hog Roast made it busy event and a really enjoyable day out.
Mel M0RNU, Barry G4PCL and David 2E0DAO set up outside in a suntrap and were distracted by the aroma of the hog roast. They were joined during the day by Alan M0OLT, Dennis M0DEN and Nigel G6MRN.
The HF bands were totally swamped by an International competition but several QSO were made on 2m including some long interesting chats.
The next club event will be a day out at Crich Stand on Saturday 20th April.
