HALF A FIELD DAY

You have heard the expression “Less is More”. Our field day on 18th Jan in Thorndon Country Park was only 3 hours long and only on 2m, but it was twice the success expected for a cold winter’s day. We certainly promoted the hobby with almost every motorist scrutinising us as they entered the park – I suspect they thought we were wheel clampers!

We had contacts on FM, SSB and CW. We even got an impromptu visit from a local ham who heard us and popped down to say hello.
