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 … Continue reading →

We will be using the more modern equipment on all the other bands. … Continue reading →
Thank you for you patience and now trying to build up the new website as quickly as possible. There was a rogue script that was backing up the website every 2.5 minutes which made it impossible to access the back-end of the website to sort it out. Because of this problem the website was switched off and it was decided that it would be easier and quicker to delete the website which would include the rogue script and start again from scratch. As we now know the cause of the problem (fingers crossed) it should not happen again. Because this … Continue reading →
