Hull City of Culture 2017

Hull City of Culture 2017

The Humber Fortress DX A.R.C in Hull (UK) have organised a year’s multi club activation to celebrate Hull as the UK City of Culture 2017.

Ofcom have kindly granted the call sign GB0HCC for the whole year using the standard NOV format of 28 days, each club will apply for the relevant 28 day portion of the year, to follow on from the previous club.

The Humber Fortress DX A.R.C will be starting the year off, on 1st January at 00:01 UTC until 08:30 UTC from the Cottingham Road Baptist Church.Also after the Church services have finished in the afternoon about 16:00hrs we hope to activate for a few more hours.

We are only at the Cottingham Road Baptist Church site for 24hrs as the NOV is then transferred to the Humber Fortress DX A.R.C club house at Fort Paull for the remaining 27days. I can say that the station will be active on club nights Tuesday and Friday from 17:00hrs UTC until 21:30hrs. Other times such as weekends may also happen, so watch this space.

On the 29th Jan 2017 Hull and District Amateur Radio Society take over for the next leg of the event, activation times for them will be made clear later.
