International Museums Weekend

International Museums Weekend (26-27th June).
The Society undertook an interesting weekend at Castletown with a special event station in the Old Grammar School (GB4MNH). Antenna poles were provided by Mike for an 80 Mt dipole and Dave got involved in the erection of a tripod and a Snowdonia SRC X80 Vertical HF Antenna. Stewart and Dave operated digital modes with Steve and John and Dave did some SSB contacts; Arthur brought his key and CW was on the air and Harry tried some contacts on his FM handheld. On behalf of MNH Harry would like to thank all those who took part (and any one I failed to mention) for this gallant effort in putting the Island once again on the air. The weather was great, conditions were acceptable and fun was had by all!!
