GB5CLM – CHOTA special event station

SADARC - Southport & District Amateur Radio Club

Several members of the Southport & District Amateur Radio Club are to run a special event station from Cottage Lane Mission, our training and examination centre in Ormskirk, on the 10th September.

There will be lots of other stations on the air throughout the UK and around the world and we’ll be running 2m voice, HF voice/cw and HF PSK stations between around 10:00 and 17:00 on the day.

If you’re new to the hobby, this is the perfect opportunity to come and operate a club station and, regardless of how long you have been in the hobby, have a go at something new.

Refreshments will be on hand throughout the day for operators.

We anticipate setting the station up starting at around 08:30; so any help with that would be welcomed too.

The callsign is yet to be allocated but we expect it to be GB5CLM (preferred), GB6CLM, or GB8CLM if the other two aren’t available.

If you are able to come and help man the station we’d be really grateful if you could let us know so that we don’t have everyone come between 10:00 and 11:00, for example, and then have nobody to operate for the rest of the day. Please contact us with your availability.

If you’re interested in Amateur Radio then why not come along at any time during the day and see what we do and have a chat with one of our members to see how you can get involved.
