                               ILLW 2014 GB2HL 15th–17th AUGUST 2014

The weekend got off to a bright and sunny start thankfully, Erection of the new tent went quite well regardless of a few minor hiccups and I must say there seemed to be a lot more puzzled spectators than on previous years, This year was made a bit more special as it was 100yr anniversary of the world war and we were going to be transmitting pretty close to were one of the listening posts was located for picking up the coded messages sent by German boats and subs etc during the war. We managed to locate pictures of the hut used and these were printed on A4 photo paper and put up in the tent along with appropriate text for people visiting us throughout the weekend. All in all it was quite a successful weekend with numerous contacts on ssb-cw & slow scan and also vhf-uhf. Sadly the weekend was cut short on Sunday by gale-force winds and the threat of worse to come so to avoid unnecessary damage to equipment we called it a day…16 Hex Up

A Massive THANKYOU must go out to everyone who helped out over the weekend and to the numerous visitors including the Boys in Blue and the reporters from the local papers….
