As I was traveling to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre early this morning, looking up at the dark cloudy sky, I though of yesterday with all the rain. I thought to myself we were in for another wet day, I was wrong as it turned out very sunny and it was a pleasure to be there.
We kept our operation restricted to the 40mtr band but as our operational 1154/1155 in the Radio Room is crystal controlled and the limited frequencies it had were being used, so we had to use the more modern equipment we have there. Although the band conditions were fairly bad we managed over 50 ssb contacts but the CW section of the band was bad managing only 4 QSO’s.
There were flying displays by the Battle of Britain Flight with two Spitfires and the Lancaster Bomber. The Spitfires were too fast for me but I managed a picture of the Lancaster below.
Thanks to all Stations that contacted GB2CWP and we will certainly announce the next time we open the station at Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre.
