WORLD AMATEUR RADIO DAY 2013

18th April 2013

The 88th anniversary of the IARU.

  'Amateur Radio: Entering Its Second Century of Disaster Communications'

GX4GZ club call used.

This event as usual took place at The New Sunnyside Club in Cleethorpes.

Due to high winds our antennas were limited and we couldn't use one of our new antennas which we wanted to try. We ended up using a long wire for HF voice and a vertical for psk31.

We still managed a few good contacts so thanks to all that gave us a QSO.
