Following the success of the 2013 Poacher International Jamboree, LSWC were asked if they would put on a station for Poacher 2017; Ian G4EVK Chairman, Pam G4STO Secretary, Steve M5ZZZ Activity Officer and Les G1LQB Education with help from Barry G4DBS from RAF Waddington ARC set up the station ready for the start of Poacher on Sunday 30th July; potentially 500 scouts will be introduced to amateur radio over the week. Three of the visitors to our station today were Andy G0MNI from Grimsby, Andrew M0OOO and Mark M6WMS both from RAF Waddington ARC all three are working at Poacher and regrettably unable to help on our station.
Below are a few pictures from the day; you will note we have an appropriate hammer for the job!! Please note our Secretary (that’s me) got down to work. Also please note life got a little sad towards the end of the day!!!
