I can't help with a vehicle but if you have access to an Amateur radio station we will be happy to give you a call from a similar event here at the Suffolk Aviation Heritage group near Ipswich on the Sunday - we hope to have most of the Clansman radios that went South operational on the day


Regards & best wishes for your event

Probably mostly 14MHz as the 322 is unconverted so USB only - we may try 3.615MHz AM first thing around 11am - our callsign will be GB2CRF


There is a topic for it somewhere under future events with no recent replies, if you want to continue there...

I agree - you are probably too close - I expect to start on 3.615 MHz AM or 7.187 MHz AM subject to conditions and interference before moving up to 14MHz to hunt as many other countries as I can. I will PM you my mobile and direct e-mail so you can ask for an update on our working frequency during the day. What callsign should we listen out for ?





(apologies for hijacking the Portsmouth thread)
