We had another successful day at Poacher 2017 with a steady flow of scouts visiting the station, some making a return visit because the thunder storm on Sunday prevented them from making contact with other stations.
Below are a few photos of the scouts paying attention to Les G1LQB giving a brief description of amateur radio and others showing Barry G4DBS finding stations for them to speak to.
Naturally we had to eat; today it was beef burgers and mushrooms gathered from the showground by Les G1LQB followed by doughnuts provided by Barry G4DBS.
A few other visitors to the station:
A few of the other activities at Poacher.
And you could say ‘it never rains but it pours’; enlarge this photo
and you can actually see the stair rods of rain coming down!!! The rain didn’t dampen our enthusiasm but it did stop radio operations as we couldn’t hear the other stations through the rain pounding on the tent roof and finally below the standing water after the ‘shower’.
