Friday saw Sean M0SLY and Andy G7LRR turned up early at Fort Paull to start setting up the antenna farm, this starts with putting up 2 x 15m Scam masts spaced around 50m apart.

Once the mast was in place, Paul M6XPW turned up with Kevin M0KVK, to help but the wire aerials’ up this year we have gone for a 20m delta loop, 40m ¼ wave vertical , 40m delta loop.

Once the aerials are setup the Mobile shack was put in place and the radio setup,
