Mills on the Air 2019

 

 

This year, Mills on the Air event was held over the weekend of the 11th and 12th of May.

 

Sue G6YPY and Adrian MOTCD were kept busy operating during Saturday.

 

Oversea Stations 'worked' during the weekend included those from: Antwerp, South West France, South Brittany, Orkney Islands, Italy, Holland.

 

 

 

There was a delay starting on Sunday waiting for the Mill grounds to be opened. However once in, it wasn't too long before we were on the air.

It’s a real benefit having the mobile shack, as once on site, it is easy to kit out, set up, and get on the air.

The rain kept away and apart from the occasional cloud, Sunday was the better of the two days.

The Mill was open to the public as was their canteen serving refreshments and homemade cakes.

Operators including Adrian M0TCD, Russell G7TMR, Chris 2E0NCJ and Tony G3XQM, also had their turn to operate and log the contacts.

Over the weekend 65 amateur stations were 'worked' of which 15 were a mix of Windmills and Watermills.

A Big thank you to the following for helping out behind the scenes which made this event possible:

Dennis M0YDC, Chris M1CSE, Mark Wooden, Rob 2E0RJA. and especially Adrian for the collection and return of the trailer to and from Shermanbury. And of course not forgetting William Greenwell.
