Report from Dave S GM0KCN:
Quite a slow start contacts wise on Saturday with only 17 QSOs. Mike and Steven did the majority of the logging and Dave H and I did most of the operating.
We all enjoyed the sunny weather and also a wander round Whitrope Station where Border TV were filming for Border Life programme.
Sunday was not good weather wise, lots of heavy showers, however radio
wise were the centre of a pile up again, just like two years ago, with I
think 75 QSOs, so a busy time for the three of us.
We called it a day just after 3pm when conditions were fading. Packed everything away in a break between the rain and were on the road
a little after 4:30pm.
Thanks to those who managed to visit and enjoy the coffee and biscuits
and see the radio station in action.
Big thank you to Dave H for providing the caravaning facilities and
mains power and the radio kit.
